Hello TrieuVy,

you can't achive that with pen styles.

I'd do the following:

  1. Add a ZOrder column to the linestring table, default it to 0.
    • -1 ... underground
    • 0 ... ground
    • > 0 above ground level
  2. Create a view on the postgis database, that queries all possible intersectionpoints between linestrings that have
    a ZOrder value >= 0 and return the intersection point, (possibly) the id of linestring with higher ZOrder value and the orientation at the intersection point.
  3. Create a layer based on that view to render bridge symbols with the given orientation.

Btw, your map looks nice!

Thanks FObermaier!

I will try

Hi FObermaier,

I created new layer for above ground level ( bridges ). The result :

Endcap and start cap not ok ( OSM and google map style can join end cap and start cap of line OK.

How can we create a good style in this case? I can sort  rendering  geometries by "ZOrder" column in the same layer. But joining outlines seem have some problem by sharpmap's core.

The problem is that you have a seperate layer for the bridges. If you leave them all on one layer but


you should be all set.

Nice solution, though!
