P-Map on Oregon 300, with winter sports, bike and contour lines layers.

The typical set-up for a custom Garmin map is the use of three different layers (of unique family-id, see this page (in french) for more details), made with Mkgmap: contour lines relief layer, routing layer and the basemap.
You'll find here the layer styles I made with the ressources (style and TYP files) needed.

Maps should be rendered accurately on Colorado/Oregon/Dakota generation handhelds and following. Previous generations (eTrex...) use a limited color palette and may have a quite random rendering, with high risk of ugly map.
Screen captures were made with an Oregon 300.

Relief

How-to on this page (in french). The mkgmap default style contains rules for displaying contour lines, the TYP file (with family-id=44) defines their colours. Three shades are available: light brown, dark brown and dark gray.

TYP files: 44-contours-brown-l.TYP | 44-contours-brown-d.TYP | 44-contours-gray.TYP

Routing

A routing layer (link in french) is not meant to be visible but stay behind the basemap, its appearence doesn't need to be modified (left image). However, if we want to use this simplified map as main map, a TYP file can give the map the look on the right.

Oregon 300 routage typ.png

This TYP file only applies to layers with family-id=43, ways are colored like this:

  • Motorways in blue
  • Trunks in green
  • Primary roads in red
  • Secondary roads in orange
  • Tertiary roads in yellow
  • Minor roads (unclassified, residential, service) in white
  • Tracks in brown
  • Paths in pink

Style: routage.zip
TYP file: 43-routing.TYP

Geodesic

This layer only displays man_made=survey_point tagged points, and only those with an altitude set.

Basemap style is P-Map.

Mapnik

Pseudo-mapnik style wanting to look like OpenStreetMap's main map. There are no bridges nor tunnels, two versions are given: with or without POIs as my handheld GPS displays its own icons above those from the map.

No routing

ClearMap

ClearMap is a style inspired by Ollie O’Brien maps, themselves inspired by orienteering maps. There are no POIs (out of cities).
These maps are better intended for pedestrian use, the slimness of lines making it not so readable in a car or on a bike.

No routing

Oregon 300 clearmap 01.png
Oregon 300 clearmap 02.png
  • Motorways in blue
  • Trunks in green
  • Primary and secondary roads in orange
  • Tertiary, unclassified, residential, and service way in plain black
  • Carriage-roads (mostly unpaved) in plain gray
  • Hiking paths, cycleways and living streets in black dashed line
  • Airport runways in gray
  • Railways in black and white
  • Rivers in light blue

The only polygons displayed are water surfaces (light blue).

ClearMap2

This version adds to Clearmap various landuses:

  • Urban areas (residential, industrial, commercial) in purple gray
  • Military areas in pink
  • Quarries in light brown with darker squares
  • Agricultural land (farms, vineyards, orchards) in pinky brown
  • Meadows and parks in light green
  • Scrub and heath in light green with darker squares
  • Forests in dark green
  • Glaciers in blue gray
  • Wetlands in blue gray hatching

P-Map

P-Map is my main map style. Ways are thick and colourful to be easily readable in a car on on a bike, emphasis has been given to tracks and paths, useful in hiking and MTB rides.

p-map is made for GPS navigators while p-map-bc is for BaseCamp or Mapsource.

  • Motorways in blue
  • Trunks in green
  • Primary roads in red
  • Secondary roads in orange

  • Tracks (mostly unpaved) in dashed brown with white border
  • Paths, cycleways and living streets in bright dashed green with white border
  • Railways in black and white
  • Airport runways and unknown roads (highway=road) in gray
  • Power lines are slim gray lines
  • Pipe-lines and penstocks in dark red
  • Administrative boundaries in dashed purple

Points

  • Cities, towns, suburbs, villages, hamlets, localities
  • Barriers, motorway exits, car parks, gas stations
  • Mountains passes, peaks, springs, caves
  • Bus stops, bus and train stations, level crossings, places of worship and hospitals
  • Shelters and alpine huts, view points, towers, lighthouses, wind turbines

Polygons

  • Sea, lakes and wetlands (swamps and salt ponds)
  • Meadows, scrub, forest, parks
  • Cultivated land, quarry, beach, glaciers
  • Residential, commercial, industrial or military areas, airports, cemeteries and sports centers, car parks, camp sites and buildings

P-map-bc 01.png

p-map-bc (on the right) style is optimized for BaseCamp, lines are finer, surfaces less colored.

Osma11

Style based on level 11 Osmarender former rendering. Osmarender gave at low scales a good view of the level of mapping of an area. Given its particularities (thin lines, no surfaces except water), it is to be used in MapSource or BaseCamp better than on a handheld.

No routing.
