Hi,

- what exactly did you download?
- you need building numbers on a sea chart?

Have a nice day, Dirk

Hi Dirk,

I downloaded some kap files from http://map.openseamap.org/

Yes we use it for search and rescue purposes. Buildingnumbers can be used as a reference point when someone calls from there house.
But more important are the dock numbers or names in some marina's here. The Marina of Hoorn has dock names on OSM but not in the downloaded map.

Files at http://sourceforge.net/projects/opennau … ps/Region/ are very old.
You might want to try my charts: http://kap.grade.de/

House numbers: Limited resolution at fixed zoom-level raster maps is probably the reason for this issue!?

Re: Offline map wont buildingnumbers and other labels

Depending on what your usecase is exactly and the platform you are working on, you might want to try other programs as well. There are a couple of programs that use Openstreetmap data. Some might be more suitable than a nautical navigation app like OpenCPN.
