[mkgmap-dev] Binary OSM file support?From Chris Miller chris_overseas at hotmail.com on Wed Sep 8 20:27:20 BST 2010
Hi Jeff, Scott Crosby posted a message to this list back in June asking for comment on his binary format. My thoughts at the time were that it looked rather promising and adding support for it to the splitter would be a good idea, though I was reluctant to use it other than internally if the file format wasn't relatively stable because of the maintenance problems that it might introduce. I haven't been following the discussions on the Osmosis side (and indeed, have had hardly any time to dedicate to the splitter lately either), but it sounds like this file format is now at release candidate status in Osmosis? If so I think that's great news! I can't speak for the other developers on splitter or mkgmap, but personally at least I'd really like to see a revamped splitter and mkgmap that can work with the format directly - there are clearly some huge benefits to be had from going that route. Perhaps Scott, Steve and co can chime in with their thoughts on the topic and where they see things heading from here?
