New Maps

Improved Road Presentation

Different road classifications have slightly different widths so they are more distinguishable.

The presentation of roads at middle zoom levels is improved.

One-way Arrows

One-way arrows have been added when zoomed in. Note also that alleys and service roads now are solid lines (but less prominent — no edges/casing). All roads are now solid lines, paths, footways, cycleways, tracks are dashed.

Unpaved Roads are Highlighted

Cyclists often want to know which roads are unpaved: road cyclists may want to avoid these while gravel rides may want to seek them out! Our new style uses a brown road casing to show roads that are unpaved.

Improved Cycleways

Cycleways are highlighted and labeled. This includes differentiation between unpaved (pictured: Palisades Valley Trail) and paved (pictured: Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Trail).

Bike Trails

Designated cycling trails are highlighted (in this example, the brown casing also indicates they are unpaved).




Railroads have been made more prominent. Cyclists generally like to know where railroads cross their path, and now they can see at a glance.

Additional Area Features

Additional area features add background detail to the map. Residential areas, retail areas, industrial areas, military areas, as well as others were added to the map and styling.
