These two map formats look very similar (based on SQLite and Tiled Maps).

I am looking for method to convert maps from mbtiles to RMaps SQLite and vice versa without quality lost.


A reasonably easy to use GUI based tool for this is Mobile Atlas Creator: http://mobac.sourceforge.net/ I've used it many times to do this very operation.

Just add your existing MBTiles file using "SQLite based atlas formats" instructions at the very bottom of the manual here: http://mobac.sourceforge.net/MOBAC/README.HTM#FileBased

And create a new RMaps format output file. All it does is copy the tiles from one SQLite container to the other, so no loss of quality.

  • this converter do not address RMaps as I can understand it. The problem is also that I have not been able to find a description of RMaps format – kFly Oct 24 '18 at 21:06
  • @kFly osmand uses RMaps format. The converter based on manual analysis of RMaps file and mbtiles file. Also there is someone's gist on github (the second variant by jerome077 do the same as my python script): gist.github.com/andrewharvey/4516352 – Tarwirdur Turon Oct 24 '18 at 22:32
