[mkgmap-dev] Configurable flood blocker

From Minko ligfietser at online.nl on Fri Dec 17 22:53:55 GMT 2010

Hi Wanmil,

Just letting you know I solved the floodings problem.
My tile borders stretched too far east, far beyond the extract.
By ending it more to the west, the sea disappeared :-)
I even didn't have to use a floodblocker.

Thanks for your help!

You can load a separate coastline file using the option 
When using this option the coastlines of your tiles are ignored and are 
only taken from the given file(s). The file(s) need not contain only 
coastlines but I think using the complete original benelux and german 
files here will not be possible due to memory problems.

You can use osmosis (please read the osmosis documentation!) to extract 
the coastlines.
The osmosis call might look like:
osmosis.bat -rb europe.osm.pbf -tf accept-ways natural=coastline -tf 
reject-relations --used-node -wb europe_coasts.osm.pbf
