[mkgmap-dev] Province names

From Nils Leandersson nils.leandersson at googlemail.com on Mon Jun 25 11:59:31 BST 2012


I am referring to the province name added to all POI's address information so neither 1 or 2.

Hopefully this screen shot from my Zumo explains it better:

This is the listing I get when browsing cities. The three first ones are okay because they are located within provinces that have English names in the 'name' tag in the relation outlining the province. The last, Bangkok (city), is within Bangkok province. The relation for Bangkok province is properly tagged with "กรุงเทพมหานคร" in it's 'name' tag and "Bangkok" in it's 'name:en' tag. As you can see, the 'name:en' is not used but rather Thai script "Latinized".

Bangkok's relation: http://ra.osmsurround.org/analyzeRelation?relationId=92277&_noCache=on#

Samut Sakhon's relation: http://ra.osmsurround.org/analyzeRelation?relationId=1908816&_noCache=on#
