Hi,

if you need basic map without contour lines then you need to use osmosis and mapsforge mapwriter plugin to generate vector map from OSM pbf file. How to use the plugin is decribed for generation of maps: https://github.com/mapsforge/mapsforge/blob/master/docs/Getting-Started-Map-Writer.md


If you want to create customized maps with contour lines see on detailed description on forum: http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=1839.msg11684#msg11684 Please note that contour lines increase the size of map especially in Asia.
