Map Tiles

AAT does not automatically remove downloaded map tiles. This is to...

  • reduce network traffic as much as possible.
  • reduce battery drain.
  • speed up the map view.

This means that you have to remove old tiles manually from time to time. Go to Settings->Map Tiles to remove old map tiles.

Offline Maps

Download and store maps:

  1. Download maps and render themes from one of these map providers:
    OpenAndroMaps,Freizeitkarte or Mapsforge
  2. Store extracted maps in the directory maps or in one of its subdirectories.
    Example: maps/OAM/ contains
  3. Store extracted themes in a subdirectory of the directory containing the corresponding maps.
    Example: maps/OAM/OAM/ contains andromaps_cycle.xml, symbols/, patterns/ and other files.

Enable offline maps

  1. Inside AAT open the map settings dialog. (Settings->Map Tiles).
  2. Select the directory that contains the map files (In this example maps/OAM/ will be listed).
  3. Select a render theme.
  4. Disable Mapnik and enable Mapsforge in Menu->Map.

Where to find files?

AAT let's you create and view files in GPX format. This files are exchangeable with many other applications. They can also be edited in a text editor. These and other files are stored in subdirectories of the data directory. You can choose the location of the data directory from the settings. The structure of the data directory is as follows:

  • aat_data/activity[0-4] - tracked activities
  • aat_data/log - activity that gets tracked at the moment
  • aat_data/nominatim - search result from OpenStreetMap Nominatim
  • aat_data/osm_features - OSM Features original file and parsed files
  • aat_data/overlay - overlays such as planned tracks or search results
  • aat_data/overpass - queries from the OSM Overpass server
  • aat_data/dem3 - cached Digital elevation data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission and other sources



AAT lets you query the Overpass API. Any result of a query can be saved to aat_data/overlay. It then can be displayed as an overlay inside the map-view whenever needed.


[amenity=restaurant] will get you list of all restaurants located inside the area that was visible on the map-view before opening the Overpass dialog.

Calculating calories

AAT uses the formula time[hours] * MET * weight[kg] to calculate the kcal used for a specific activity. MET stands for metabolic equivalent. The higher the value, the more energy you would use for this specific activity. A complete list of activities and MET values can be found here.

Both MET and weight can be provided in the settings dialog. The MET value is leading the activity's name. For example: 6.8 bicycling, leisure, moderate effort
