[mkgmap-dev] Hiding railway tunnels and underground lines

From Marko Mäkelä marko.makela at iki.fi on Sat Sep 26 19:45:01 BST 2009

The default style seems to display underground tracks on the city map.
I find that a little confusing.  Also, we have a 13.5-km harbour railway
tunnel (http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vuosaaren_satamarata) nearby, most of
which has not been mapped yet, most likely because it would have to be
extrapolated heavily.

Is there any reason to display railway tunnels on the Garmin map?  Would
routing work with invisible objects (not that Garmin would support a rail
routing option, but perhaps it could make sense to hide long highway tunnels
as well)?

I can supply a patch for hiding railway tunnels, but I would like to point
out that my patch for improving bus stop naming has been waiting to be
applied for several weeks now.  I have posted the patch on this list a
couple of times.  You can also find the most recent revision here:
