Hi, 
T‌here are two ICAO charts for Denmark with much information that is not on the SkyDemon charts (forests, power lines, secondary roads, significant buildings). 

‌These charts are also published as PDFs. Is there a way to add them similar to the way we can see the visual approach charts? 

B‌‌est regards
S‌ten Vesterli

SkyDemon only shows SkyDemon enroute charts, and we have no plans to use enroute charts published by other parties.

What we care about is what's actually on the charts, and making sure it is useful. We should be showing wooded areas already, and secondary roads too, assuming you're sufficiently zoomed in. We don't show individual buildings. Overhead lines are a feature we are in the process of adding over the next few months. ‌‌

OK. You are not showing wooded areas nor secondary roads in Denmark. Below is a comparison between the SkyDemon chart and the official ICAO card published by the Danish authorities.

Have you got all the correct layers enabled? The controls are in the bottom right hand corner of the chart, accessed by tapping the "sandwich" icon.

Also check which chart style you are using, there is at least one which doesn't support the drawing of wooded areas.

Thanks, I found the Chart Style setting and changed it, so now at least I have the trees.
‌The default SkyDemon2 doesn't show trees wooded areas, but SkyDemon1 and SkyDemon3 does.

We have turned on power lines in Denmark for our next chart update (1st February). You can use this thread as a good place to give feedback on them. Note that they only appear at 250k scale or larger scales.
