Showing trails difficulty and visibility

LoMaps are already very good but would be even better for hikers if rendering the OSM tags about trail difficulty (sac_scale) and visibility (trail_visibility). Some proposals are made here https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Compare_Hiking_Maps and I believe LoMaps could take benefit from it.

Just use the Current Theme of Openandromaps. That's how it is done there. You can also use the cards.

Many thanks for your comment !

I was not aware of the Openandromaps project. This looks awesome and exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely use it, contribute if possible and donate to support !

Hi,

the LoMaps itself contains information about SAC scale but the internal theme doesn't shown them. Please use alternative theme for example Waymarked theme that can be downloaded from Locus Store https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/lomaps-sac-information#comment-72644 You can also download Elevate theme from mentioned OAM project.

Thanks, Petr

Thanks for your answer.

I tried the waymarked theme and it is indeed rendering sac_scale quite nicely.

But I do prefer the Elevate theme which is also rendering the trail_visibility tag. Definitely a big plus when hiking out of the main trails !

Anyway thanks for the tip !
