swisstopo 1:10'000

Hello,

in summer 2016 swisstopo extended the details of their maps from 1:25'000 to 1:10'000. When I check Locus store it still speaks of up to 25'000. Is there a change in sight? This would be amazing as these maps are great and would be even better.

Thanks for your work on Locus, I love using this app

Dear Joachim,

I think that we've already discussed it in different topic. We could very likely implement support for national map 1:10 000 but the problem would be the price for map. Such map would have 4 times or 8 times higher price...the question is if would be interesting for you or other users...

Best regards

Hi Petr,

thank you for your response. I searched this site and the Locis forum before asking and couldn't find another post - sorry if I'm wrong.

I agree a 4 or times higher price would be too much. Is it really like that. They say on the given link it is machine generated. Sad to learn this isn't going to happen.

Dear Joachim,

no need to apologize.

I'm aware of the price. More over when current price is also quite expensive but it only reflects our outcomes we pay to swisstopo.

However thank you for the post.

Best regards

Hello again Petr,

I asked swisstopo for their comment on this price. They say for the higher resolution of 1:10'000 they charge 25% more.

This means if I currently pay 960 LoPoints for 1:25'000 I would pay 1'200 points for 1:10'000.

I would pay that. I'd really use the better quality!

Can I suggest to add a option for this? So that the user can choose?

Thank you, regards Joachim

Dear Joachim,

I contacted the Swisstopo to get info about pricing of National Map 1:10 000. Unfortunately our price for 1:10 000 is the same as price for other map. Due this fact would be the final price for our about 3500 - 4000 LC. And this is probably too expensive.... I don't know there is maybe some discount for natural person but not for us.

Hello PetrThank you for going after this. Strange as this is differs from what they told me.

I agree this is expensive, I'd probably still consider buying one of my region but not many...
