LoMaps vs OSM maps - names of islands are missing in the LoMaps

Dear team,

I've just downloaded LoMaps of Karelia and a bit disappointed comparing them with OSM maps. Especially, I need island names on the map but do not see them on LoMaps. Scale changing does not help. Below are two screenshots to compare. Please advice - probably there are some settings ...

Hi,

there are several reasons why you can't see the captions/names. It may be the technical limitation of LoMaps but also a problem in the theming. Could I kindly ask you to send me the GPS coordinates of this area? I'd check it.

Thanks, Petr

Hi Petr,

Hi,

it seems that the names of islands are displayed only when the island has name defined as Node with tag place=island. But these islands are named as OSM Relation and for this reason the names aren't displayed in the app. We'll prepare some improvements during the summer to fix it.

Thank you for the report


Regards

Petr
