What are the available map styles?

The map styles are part of routing profiles. The eBike Flow app provides three routing profiles for different riding use cases: Daily, Leisure, and eMTB.

Daily profile

– This routing profile is optimized for commuting use cases and provides a clean map view with lower terrain contrast and no contour lines.
– Only the local cycling network is visible.
– City-specific features, such as house numbers and traffic signals, are included.
– MTB trails are not visible.
– Points of interest include charging stations, dealers, and WC.
– Paved/unpaved/unknown surface paths have different colors.
– Steps have a different color to be easy for the rider to avoid.
– Small and unpaved roads are less visible.

Leisure profile

– This routing profile is optimized for countryside use to give a good overview of the surroundings/landscape and combines satellite view with standard map in medium terrain contrast.
– Used for the leisure routing profile and activity tracking (without active navigation). Includes cycleways as green lines to give a good indication of roads that are suitable for long-distance biking.
– MTB trails are not visible.
– Points of interest adapted for long-distance biking with added layers such as drinking water, WC, cycle dealers, charging stations.
– Paved/unpaved/unknown surface paths have different colors.
– Highlights mountain tops and altitude values.
– Bike nodes are only visible in some parts of Germany/Netherlands. Fore information about bike nodes:https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Cycle_routes
– Some road types may have duplicated outlines to differentiate the left/right side, in such cases when the road has a cycleway on one side of the road.
– Steps have a different color to be easy for the rider to avoid.

eMTB profile

– This routing profile is optimized for off-road and MTB use and provides good contrast between the road and the background with high terrain contrast.
– MTB trails are visible.
– Trails are separated based on difficulty classification; 1 (green) easiest, 2 (blue), 3 (red), 4 black (most difficult). Color coding comes from OSM classification, see: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mountain_biking
– The trails classified as "difficulty levels 5 and 6 are not recommended to ride" for safety reasons and are mostly not visible on the map.
– Points of interest adapted for mountain biking include mountain tops (with altitude values), nature reserves, charging stations, cycle dealers, drinking water, and WC.
– Cycling networks are not visible.
– The colors provide good contrast between different terrain types such as agriculture, wood, grass, scrub, vineyard, farmyard.
– Unpaved tracks use a brown outline.
– The color of landscape types, such as wood, crop, and grass, is optimized for different zoom levels.
– Hillshade is combined between vector data and pixel data terrain layer to provide detailed terrain information in areas where only pixel data is available.
– Smaller paths and tracks are visible.
