[mkgmap-dev] Holes in the Sea

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Fri Mar 2 20:57:33 GMT 2012

The problem is that splitter and mkgmap don't work together at all. The 
solution would be that splitter does more checking against the 
possibility of such empty tiles, or other way around - an improvement on 
how max-nodes are counted. The other possibility would be, if there was 
an automatic mechanism (mapid is important here why it needs to be 
somehow integrated) how too big tiles could be split again and 
reprocessed once more by mkgmap.
