The RouteYou map, the standard map layer was developed with a focus on outdoor route planning and outdoor navigation.
That is why it was decided to only show the information that is essential for those two purposes. This way you are not distracted by an overdose of information.
The map is based on OpenStreetMap and is hosted and offered with Thunderforest technology.
The map allows to be oriented in any direction, an essential feature in navigation. This way you can always read the labels that are displayed.
