|Vector map in RouteMe with mapsforge(Android)||Jb Mob||7/22/12 7:36 AM|
I'm an Android and iOS developer and i'm currently developing a map application for both platforms. I need to use vector maps because of the weight and there is no open source equivalent for maps forge under iOS.
So i have started the (huge) project to translate maps forge in objective-c and integrate it into RouteMe as a tilesource. I plan to put my code on github pretty soon and i would like to know if someone would be interested in this project ?
Also, does anyone ever try to do it before or would have any advice for me before i start some part of maps forge ?
Currently, i'm working on the map reader and it's going pretty well.
There is still some things that i find hard to understand about the rendering part but i am confident.
I don't know yet what i am going to use for the drawing (QuartzCore, Quartz2D, Cocos2d, OpenGL).
Any advice/help will be appreciate.

This sounds interesting. One project I've seen that's not related to Route-Me is OpenStreetPad: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenStreetPad
Might be some useful bits for rendering there.

I am going to look that, I also think it will help me.

So, did you manage to render OSM vector maps in iPhone? Could you share your code on GitHub?

Did u finish your maps forge port ? I also need to build an app with vector data and I m interested in re-usign and existing work. feel free to contact me in private if you re not planning to release it as open source.

There is also libosmscout that do vector maps drawing (unix, windows, QT, iOS, Android,...), routing, searching :
I did the iOS/OSX drawing code, it's not finished but works quite well. I'll also commit a route-me source that use libosmscout to do offline map drawing when I'll have solved some tiling issues (cut labels at tile border,...)

Any news on the route-me source you were talking about? Thanks.

You might also want to take a look at Maply, part of the WhirlyGlobe-Maply project:
Maply takes the high performance rendering approach for iOS, using OpenGL ES and generally being crazy fast.
It's meant to be a fairly comprehensive solution, but I'm finding that other projects are looking at it as a rendering engine with geo features. That might be useful in your case.
