[mkgmap-dev] [PATCH V4] boundary preparer with quadtree

From WanMil wmgcnfg at web.de on Sun Feb 19 11:49:44 GMT 2012

Hi Gerd,

thanks for that patch. It's a big step forward :-)
I've comitted it and also merged all changes from the trunk so that the 
branch does not diverge too much.

I tried to compile boundaries for an old planet file but got an 
exception in the BoundaryMerger:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

Can you have a look on it?


> Hi WanMil,
> attached is the new patch for the performance branch.
> Its quite big because I've rewritten many methods to work with the quadtree
> instead of
> List<boundary>
> Major changes:
> - new file format for *.bnd files. It stores first the boundary tags, then
> the areas with float precision.
> The file size is not much different from the old format, but when zipped it
> is much smaller.
> The time to load the file into the quadtree is shorter than the time to load
> the old format.
> The old format is still supported, but requires much more time in the
> LocationHook (probably it is still
> faster than trunk, but not much)
> - the bounds parameter allows now to specify a zip file with the *.bnd
> files. The zip file can have a directory structure, but should not contain
> duplicate *.bnd files.
> - BoundaryPreparer uses multiple processors for the
> workoutBoundaryRelations() part when --max-jobs parameter allows it. When
> called as stand-alone program, it starts one thread for each processor.
> - the utilities BoundaryDiff, BoundaryMerger, BoundaryFile2Gpx,
> BoundaryLister were rewritten to use the quadtree, most of them also allow
> *.zip as input. BoundaryLister lists only the OSM tags, not the
> information created for the quadtree. Can be changed if needed.
> Open problem:
> The BoundaryMerger creates a result that contains a few more small holes
> than the trunk version. I'm going to analyse that during the next days.
> Todo: Javadoc
