Need someone to explain

Hey Guys,

a quick question. I've developed an App, which uses osmdroid to draw overlays with the boundries of the city you are currently in.
A Overlay has several thousands points and it is not nessecary to draw all those points if the zoomlevel is smaller than 12

I have some questions about the functions over overlay draw and optimization the algorithm. Do some of you have a little time. I need someone who can developed android and uses osm. To be clear, i don't need someone to develop anything. Just wanna ask you guys someting about osm in android. My current solution will cause problems in the future.

Best regards

UPD: sorry for necroposting, missed date

Hi, I'm not a developer, I could suggest you to peek in osmand code, or ask contributors
I guess everyone who use osm data for apps decide which nodes should be simplified at each zoom during conversion. B/c you could use more sophisticated logic there.
Sure nobody display every node at low zooms.
Unfortunately osmand is a poor example of optimization, but you could also check how map files for other programs are made. And there is many converters exists, so format of files should be known
