[mkgmap-dev] Amenity=shelter

From Peter Hendricks beddhist at gmail.com on Sun Dec 5 18:47:21 GMT 2010

I see where this is coming from. The problem is that there are other
shelters, like roadside shelters that have nothing to do with buses.
Like this one:


It's a lay-by with gas, food, etc. and there is a shelter from sun and
rain. Nothing to do with mountains or hiking. Perhaps this needs to be
tagged differently, but in any case, even a mountain shelter shouldn't
show up on the map as a campground. Perhaps 0x6402 building would be
more appropriate? Label=shelter as well?

Incidentally, the area highway=services on the GPS map turns into a POI
"Exit Unknown" with an interesting properties page. Check it out @
N14.85751 E100.09283

Thanks for your time.
