[mkgmap-dev] Suugestion for default style: 660c for island instead of 650cFrom Daniela Duerbeck daniela.duerbeck at gmx.de on Thu Jul 22 02:34:18 BST 2010
Hi Charlie! > I would say to leave it at 0x650c: there are other items in the 0x65-- > series that are not obviously made of water (e.g. sand bar), but which > are located in or near water. 0x650c is listed as "island" by > cGPSmapper, but falls in the "water based" category in Mapsource / > GPS. I guess it kind of makes sense as an island is in the water. > Thank you for your answer. A little bit I thought that my misunderstanding came from a ambiguous translation in the Garmin software. > 0x660x is listed by cGPSmapper as "gut" and is adjacent to other land > features like gap, isthmus etc so I assume it means either some sort > of cut-away in the land by the coast, or a promontory into the sea. > As a native English speaker I can't say I've ever heard the term used > in this way, but perhaps it's a specific geographical usage. > Or it is an american term that is uncommon by the British? ;-) After what I have found in the German menu of my Oregon I think everything is possible ...
