I would like to import the equivalent of boundary=administrative relations from shape file(s) to mkgmap, for generating the address search index with accurate city or region boundaries. The boundary=administrative data for Finland in OSM is incomplete, and it would be quite a bit of work to import the recently freed official data to OSM. I do not care that much if the boundaries are shown on the map. What I mostly care about is that streets will be associated with the correct region, city or suburb. In the long term, I think that the boundary data does belong to OSM. So, if importing the boundaries in a different format is too complicated, I guess we will have to bite the bullet and import them to OSM. Marko
