Maps

Most of the maps are based on OpenStreetMap data, some have additional Natural Earth data on lower zoom levels and town labels from Wikidata.

  • Streets - a general-purpose map with highlighted road infrastructure
  • Satellite - a mixture of satellite and aerial imagery with labels and streets from OSM
  • Basic - map containing only basic information
  • Dark and Light - derived from Basic, both map styles are designed to serve as a discreet background for additional geodata
  • Outdoor and Topo - maps with contour lines and hillshading, designed for movement in terrain
  • 3D - to show any of the map above in three dimensions
