Stunning OSM++ Maps

OSM++ maps are created by TYDAC based on OpenStreetMap data, enriched with free data from third parties such as the EU, cantons, and provinces.

For example, we used the EU DEM and high resolution DEMs freely available from, e.g., the canton of Zurich, the Grisons, Vorarlberg, Tirol, Südtirol, and Piemont. The size of the resulting GEOTIFF file in a 5m resolution is of over 425GB! 20m contours were calculated based on this file - using GDAL of course. The coverage area was enlarged in 2016 and it reaches now from Montpellier to Munich, from Reims to Rimini. We update the data at least in a frequency of three months.
