[resolved] offline use of wanderreitkarte.de

Post by GK-AC-Ger » Wed Oct 07, 2020 3:56 pm

Hello,

I discovered Alpinequest a few days ago and became fond of the app at once. Especially when I found out that it was possible to use one of my preferred online maps wanderreitkarte.de as map in Alpinequest. (As Alpinequest community map)
The side wanderreitkarte.de is designed as online map server. That means only a restricted amount of tiles is downloadable at the same time. So it is no problem to use it if you have continuous access to the internet. But if you want to download an area's maps for offline use you exceed the amount of data and become blocked for 24 hours.
Klaus Gaßner the owner of wanderreitkarte.de knows about the problem and offers a paid version on a server with higher bandwidth. (https://www.wanderreitkarte.de/shop_abo_de.php) I'm fine with that, so I bought access to the server and tried to implement it in Alpinequest as custom map.
For access the format the side uses the url format
http://abo.wanderreitkarte.de/${z}/${x} ... ticket/${t}
with ${t} as variable for the ticket code you receive for accessing the tileserver.

So I took the url and followed the intruction how to create Cusom maps:

Code: Select all

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <aqx version="9">
     
      <name>Wanderabo</name>
      <description>© Wanderreitkarte.de</description>
     
      <source id="MAP01">
        <name>Wanderreitkarte</name>
        <zoom-levels z="3,5,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16">
          <server><![CDATA[http://abo.wanderreitkarte.de/${z}/${x}/${y}.png/ticket/{$t}]]></server>
        </zoom-levels>
      </source>
     
    </aqx>

But as you can guess it doesn't work like this. So here's my question: How is it possible to download the tiles frome the paid server direcly in Alpinequest? Or have I to access the server with an other app (or programm) to create offline maps and load those into Alpinequest?

Hi,
Yes it should work almost like this. The x/y variables are not correctly spell, and you must replace t with your real key, so this should work:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<aqx version="9">
	<name>Europe Wanderreitkarte</name>
	<description>© OSM · www.wanderreitkarte.de</description>
	<source id="WRTMABO" type="topo">
		<name>Wanderreitkarte</name>
		<outline>38,27 -17,27 -17,68 38,68 38,27</outline>
		<preview-location>5.90,44.80,12</preview-location>
		<zoom-levels z="1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18">
			<server><![CDATA[http://abo.wanderreitkarte.de/{$z}/{$x}/{$y}.png/ticket/YOUR_KEY_HERE]]></server>
		</zoom-levels>
	</source>
</aqx>
