Export a portion of OSM

Post by Karzan » Sun May 15, 2016 6:57 pm

Hello,

I have uploaded many segments of OSM for my city and I want to see it on my AQ app, but the app's version is not updated to reflect those changes. How can I export a portion of the OSM that is the last version and transform it so that I be able to see it on my app.

Regards
Karzan

Hi,
Once you've changes in the OSM database and see those changes on the OSM website, you can force the AQ to update those parts.
By default, the application only updates data once in a while (it depends on the map, usually between 1 and 3 months), but you can force it to do so immediately using the Store area tool, as explained here.
Let me know if you have any issue

Thanks for the answer,

would that directly save it for offline use as well?

Yes, all displayed map areas are saved for offline use anyway, as when using the "store area" tool.

This is another reason (which I had not thought about!) to include the "force download" option I suggested in another thread.

Yes I completely understand that. I've been thinking about it and I'll answer by tomorrow.
