German Style or "deutscher Stil" is a fork of the Standard tile layer maintained by Sven Geggus.

It aims to provide a map which is more similar to conventional maps (like Shell-Atlas) commonly used in Germany.

A HOWTO for potential contributors is currently being worked on.


A description of the styles history is currently only available in German at
