[mkgmap-dev] [Patch v5] LocationHook with new QuadtreeFrom GerdP gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Sat Jan 21 20:45:02 GMT 2012
Hi WanMil, I think I have found a good solution which still fits into the current bnd format. It allows to rebuild the quadree without any merge() or split(), the file size is not much bigger, and preparer creates the new content much quicker than trunk. The trick is to save the "path" in the quadtree for each saved boundary. So, I'll save e.g. a boundary with tag mkgmap:boundaryid=r12345_032_2 , and that means the area is a part of relation r12345, and it has to be saved in child->child->child, the final _2 means that the bbox of this quadtree node contains another part of r12345. Most of the coding is done, I just have to decide where to put the methods. ciao, Gerd WanMil wrote > > Hi Gerd, > > in an abstract way that's also a dictionary.
