I had added the option to upload a GPX track in the MapOSMatic instance a little while ago, but using that was a bit tricky. This has just been improved a little big.
So far you had to manually select the map area to render before adding a GPX track which could be a bit tricky.
Now it is possible to select one of three options:
- keep original bounding box (default, as before)
- extend (merge) the bounding box to fully contain the GPX track, too
- replace the selected bounding box with that of the GPX track completely
Over the weekend I’ve imported countour data generously provided by OpenSnowMap.
Contour lines in 10m steps are now enabled in the OpenTopoMap style by default, and can be added to other styles as an overlay.

Update 2: CREATE INDEX just finished, OSM planet DB catching up with diffs again now. WayMarkedTrais route DB still not applying diffs right now for IO bandwidht reasons, will start to catch up when main database is up to date again
Update: data import finished, but GIS index still being built, and system still IO bound with that. So regular diff imports will only be resumed some time tomorrow (hopefully)
I’m currently importing contour line data provided by OpenSnowMap.
To reduce IO load I’ve disabled diff imports on the main and waymarked route databases for now, so latestest OSM changes from today are currently not rendered.
I expect the contours import to finish in the afternoon, and then diff imports to catch up before the end of the day.
Route symbols in the WayMarkedTrails overlays were originally pre-rendered in fixed size PNG format, this lead to rather pixelized output, especially on large paper sizes, as the PNGs were made for screen resolution, not for high DPI printing.
Now symbol generation has been switched to produce scalable SVGs instead, so producing much sharper output:
Old: pixelized PNG images:
New: sharp SVG images
I had some GPX overlay tests running for a while already, and now I also finally have figured out how to manage file uploads in Django successfully.
So you can now upload your own GPX tracks in an additional form step and have them put on top of your rendered map.

I unfortonately noticed that the Waymarked overlays are failing to render some route segments, and even some complete routes.
So I’ve taken the various Waymarked overlays offline while doing a fresh database import once more. Unfortunately this will take a few days before everything is back to normal again.

Page layout, render style and overlays no longer need to be chosen blindly, example images are now shown on the side to help chosing the right option.

The “New map” wizard form has now been fixed to not submit the form early on pressing [ENTER] in the “City search” field.
This used to produce form validation errors that were both annoying and hard to understand at that stage of the form.
Form submission is now only possible with the “Generate” button on the last wizzard page.
OpenStreetMap CartoCSS style has been updated to v3.3.0
TL;DR: there have been some database and rendering daemon hickups over the weekend which should now be resolved. Main database is up to date again, “Waymarked Trails” route overlay database is still catching up …
