[mkgmap-dev] Incorrect compilation of grid lines

From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Mon Jul 28 06:25:03 BST 2014

Hi Felix,


please let me know if the patched verrsion causes any problems.

The only expected effect of the patch is that fewer points are removed
from the original data. On normal OSM data, the effect is minimal.

I tried it with normal OSM data and some contourlines. For data
in Australia I see small changes at low resolutions (<=15) for shorelines,
but I can't say which result is worse, as both versions are a mess.
