[mkgmap-dev] splitter - performance and memory

From Lambertus osm at na1400.info on Tue Jul 21 07:52:20 BST 2009

It is good to have a more accurate mechanism for determining the optimal 
tile size but, imho, it is better to have a splitter that can handle the 
planet dump on more moderate machines. The advantages of more people 
providing Garmin maps outweigh the little extra handwork to get all the 
tiles rendered and still have reasonable large tile sizes. So I would 
really welcome a version of splitter that uses less memory.

People who are looking for (partially) hand optimized area lists can 
download them form http://garmin.na1400.info/routable.php (down to the 
bottom of that page).
