Motomap (OSM maps for Adventure Riding)

Post by cushman »

I just updated an open-source set of shell scripts/map styles that generate maps that show dirt roads and tracks in a different color. I only have a Zumo XT and a BMW Nav V (that I only use with stock maps) so it's only tested on that but I thought I'd share since the methodology should be the same for other models.

Using mkgmap and these scripts, I can highlight dirt roads on my Zumo XT (which I have mounted on a Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE) to let me "discover" the wonderful amount of drrrrt we have in North Georgia for year round riding (not trying to make anyone jealous!!).

An update, I created https://motomap.org to host some pre-built maps for the US.

Also uploaded a YouTube video that will show you how to mark the surface of roads in OpenStreetMap which will in turn feed the motomap map coloring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6S9UUMdVdg
