[mkgmap-dev] [PATCH v2] - styling for the power user

From Mark Burton markb at ordern.com on Thu Aug 6 11:03:25 BST 2009

Hi Felix,

> Hi Mark, I still don't really understand the advantage.

What it does is give you the possibility of doing all of the style
processing outside of mkgmap. If mkgmap's styling support is
sufficient for your needs, use that. If not, you can style your data
before it gets processed by mkgmap using some other application.

I don't have complex styling needs and can achieve what I want
using the mkgmap style files so I am not in a great rush to
write a styling application but it could easily be done.

I don't know if you can specify it in the style syntax but it's in the
underlying code.

It just seemed excessive to have separate tags for each of the values
when they could just be specified using a single tag.
