Piste Maps on Garmin

Posted by POHB on 6 January 2009 in English (English)

Last year I went skiing in Isola 2000 and managed to map most of the resort. I see now that Osmarender is rendering the proposed piste tags.

Going back there again soon and I was wondering if anyone had put together the configuration files to convert the piste and lift ways into Garmin maps? Or better still, made the Garmin piste maps already?

Currently mkgmap doesn't render any sort of aerialway such as the piestes on your map. However you can add it to the features file in mkgmap's resources/ directory or pester the devs to do it.

I don't know if the garmin format itself supports rendering piestes using a style designed for that purpose, but you could always hack around that and render it as highway=primary or something.

Hi, I'd be interested if someone is doing this. I'm not too great on the technical skills so tend to do the mapping & hope someone develops something I'm capable of using.
