[mkgmap-dev] mkgmap style parsing question.From Till Straumann Till.Straumann at alumni.TU-Berlin.de on Fri Oct 15 01:21:46 BST 2010
Hi. I'm a new user of mkgmap -- many thanks for the great tool!! -- and I have a suggestion: After creating one of my first maps I was surprised to not see a particular feature in the 'img' map even though it is present in OSM. After digging around for a while I found that this feature is marked in OSM as 'railway=disused'. I found that the default mkgmap style has a 'railway=abandoned' rule and after I added 'railway=disused' everything worked as expected. Apparently, since mkgmap didn't find a rule for 'railway=disused' the railway just got silently dropped. What I believe could be useful (if this feature is already available then forgive me posting) would be an option to report ignored tags and tag/value pairs which would alert the user that certain features are not rendered by the current style. Thanks again -- Till PS: Please 'cc' me on any replies; I'm not (yet) subscribed to this list.
