[mkgmap-dev] [PATCH v2] - round coordinates when zoomed out

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at googlemail.com on Sat Nov 21 19:42:26 GMT 2009

Can't notice any difference to v1.

BTW - Is it possible that there is a difference with the douglas peucker 
filter whether a road is routable or not?
I think it is possible that non routable ways are smoothed heftier than 
routable ways. This has nothing to do with this patch though, but the 
difference only seems to become really visible on resolution <20
(maybe resolution 24 is filtered if not routable, but not filtered if 
routable. Then the more filtering is applied on each successive level, 
the bigger the difference).

Also I noticed that cgpsmapper maps, seem to have much higher smoothing 
at lower resolutions compared to mkgmap (using 2.6). At resolution 24 
and 22 it seem to be mostly identical though. Maybe we could also 
increase the douglas peucker severity on resolution <20 compared to 
right now. Even with very few lines mkgmap maps seem slow on GPS on 
resolution 16 or 18.
