[mkgmap-dev] Same city name in a different province search results (Fwd: is_in:state)

From maning sambale emmanuel.sambale at gmail.com on Thu Nov 4 09:55:00 GMT 2010

We are testing several points style workaround in order get some basic
address search working.

In the points style we have these lines:
# -------------------------------------------------------------------

# Convert 'is_in:city' or 'is_in:town' (if existing) to addr:city to
become searchable in mkgmap1625
addr:city!=* & is_in:city=* {add addr:city='${is_in:city}'; delete is_in:city}
addr:city!=* & is_in:town=* {add addr:city='${is_in:town}'; delete is_in:town}

# Temporary HACK for none search-able 'state' tags
is_in:state=* | addr:state=* | addr:province=*
{add prov_name='${is_in:state}'; add prov_name='${addr:state}'; add
 add is_in='${prov_name},,Philippines'; set is_in='${prov_name},,Philippines';
 delete is_in:state; delete addr:state; delete addr:province;}

Below are some observations in search results

Subject: is_in:state
To: Maning Sambale <emmanuel.sambale at gmail.com>

while most POI searches are working in garmin with our latest hack, im
stuck with the following issue:

same city names or town names, eg. San Fernando, La Union & San
Fernando, Pampanga

here is what i did on:
assign two POI city & an amenity (fire station)

name=San Fernando
is_in:state=La Union
is_in:La Union,,Philippines

name=San Fernando

addr:city=San Fernando
addr:state=La Union
is_in:La Union,,Philippines

Upon Searching:The said fire station will appear under "San Fernando,
Pampanga, PH" on mapsource's Find command

I don't know the order by which the is_in:state are processed, but
once San Fernando is declared under Pampanga by any initial POI during
compilation (it's not even in aphabetical order), it will stick to
Pampanga only. Thus, any succeeding amenity with an addr:city=San
Fernando, it will automatically assume that it's on Pampanga, even if
I explicitly tagged it as La Union.
