[mkgmap-dev] LOCATOR: doubt about "contains no name tag" messages

From WanMil wmgcnfg at web.de on Thu Mar 24 18:18:37 GMT 2011

>>> Processing spain.osm.pbf from Geofabrik I get several "contains no name
>>> tag" messages that point to ways tagged in the form:
>>> admin_level=8
>>> boundary=administrative
>>> It's true they don't have a tag name, but they belong to relations with
>>> the same tags + a name and the relation is fully within the tile, so
>>> it's supposed they should get the name from the relation. Additionally,
>>> there are thousands of ways in Spain tagged in the same way (all
>>> administrative boundaries were imported that way) that don't trigger the
>>> same warning.
>>> As an example you can have a look at way 45338454. It's about 2 km away
>>> from the tile border.
>> Carlos,
>> I wasn't able to reproduce your problem probably due to different input
>> data or different splitter settings. Geofabrik seems to be down at the
>> moment so no real chance to get the same input data.
>> If way 45338454 is only 2 km away from the tile border than it might be
>> possible that it is contained in two tiles due to the splitter overlap.
>> Please check if the warning message applies to the tile in which the way
>> and the relation is contained completely.
> No, it applies to the adjacent tile.
>> Anyhow I have synchronized changes from the trunk to the locator branch.
>> Please try again with these changes. At least it should reduce the
>> number of such warning messages.
> I'm afraid I got exactly the same warnings after recompiling with the
> new changes.

Please send me your splitter settings, the splitters areas.list file and 
your mkgmap parameters.
