[mkgmap-dev] Province names

From Nils Leandersson nils.leandersson at googlemail.com on Sun Jun 24 07:49:07 BST 2012

Thanks for your answer WanMil, it had loads of good info.

I extract boundaries with:
bin\Osmosis.bat ^
 --read-pbf file=asia.osm.pbf outPipe.0=1 ^
 --tee 2 inPipe.0=1 outPipe.0=2 outPipe.1=3 ^
 --buffer inPipe.0=3 outPipe.0=4 ^
 --buffer inPipe.0=2 outPipe.0=5 ^
 --tag-filter accept-relations boundary=administrative inPipe.0=4 
outPipe.0=6 ^
 --used-way inPipe.0=6 outPipe.0=7 ^
 --tag-filter reject-relations inPipe.0=5 outPipe.0=8 ^
 --tag-filter accept-ways boundary=administrative inPipe.0=8 outPipe.0=9 ^
 --used-node inPipe.0=9 outPipe.0=10 ^
 --used-node inPipe.0=7 outPipe.0=11 ^
 --merge inPipe.0=10 inPipe.1=11 outPipe.0=12 ^
 --write-pbf file=boundaries.osm.pbf omitmetadata=true compress=deflate 

Compile boundaries with:
java -ea -Xmx1000m -jar 
mkgmap/mkgmap.jar --createboundsfile=boundaries.osm.pbf --location-autofill=bounds 

Compile map with:
java -ea -Xmx1000m -jar 
mkgmap/mkgmap.jar --location-autofill=bounds --index --family-name="OSM" --description="SE 
Asia" --family-id=20001 --route --add-pois-to-areas --pois-to-areas-placement=entrance=main;entrance=yes;building=entrance;barrier=entrance 
 --remove-short-arcs --generate-sea=floodblocker --coastlinefile=coastlines.osm.pbf 
 --latin1 --gmapsupp --style-file=MyStyles --style=standard -c template.args

In the options style file I got:
name-tag-list = int_name, name:en, name

I also noted that the relation denoting Bangkok's province was tagged as 
"city" so I changed that to multipolygon. 
Two adjacent provinces had open ends, 
http://ra.osmsurround.org/analyzeRelation?relationId=1908788&_noCache=on#, I 
closed those and now they work but only because they are tagged wrong with 
English names in the default 'name' tag were Thai should be, like most 
provinces in the area. The tool http://ra.osmsurround.org/ is great by the 

The final result is the same, the "name" tag is used rather than the 
"name:en" tag.

Can anyone confirm they can use any other name tag than the default 'name', 
and if so, what options was used for osmosis and mkgamp?
