[mkgmap-dev] Possible solution for deformed polygons

Hi Gerd,

I'm interested if POI from polygons will be created before or after 
merging. Making them before merging seems better solution.

I'd like to present house number over building area, see attached 
picture. House number is an attribute of building polygon. The same goes 
for building name.

Off topic about address search:
There exist better approach for point addressing, which is already used 
in some maps but not supported by mkgmap yet. The idea is to convert 
address point to a very short invisible road and then add this road to 
search index. This has advantage of precise location of address and also 
gives possibility to include house number with letters in street name.

Maybe you could think about some kind of procedure, which would allow to 
convert poi to a line? Like an new option for mkgmap: add-lines-to-poi?

Best regards,
