Hi,
They come from the OSM project, but are quite out-dated now...

So no dynamic updates? I figure it would be nice if you could load specific nodes from OSM (Like Hiking shelter) as an overlay to show on the map.

Kind of the same way as this page does https://pangose.github.io/sheltermap/

Unfortunately not.

When I need to extract specific OSM data I use this great tool: https://overpass-turbo.eu/

For example, to export all shelters of an area, move the map over your area and choose a correct zoom value,
Then paste this code in the text field:

Code: Select all

(
node[amenity=shelter]({{bbox}});
node[tourism=alpine_hut]({{bbox}});
node[tourism=wilderness_hut]({{bbox}});
);
out;
Then click on "Run" to display all shelters (you'll see a small circle around all of them),
Finally click "Export" to export in a GPX or KML file you can open with the app.
