[mkgmap-dev] Building northeast map

Hi Brian,

yes, looks good to me. If it doesn't work, maybe you
did not use the --style-file option to point mkgmap
to this version?
I had those problems when changing a style file
in the sources because my Eclipse environment still
used the files in the previously built mkgmap.jar.

Looking closer, I think it should be able to pick up the country from the is_in:country tag, which is often set on cities and states. 
The address rules contain:# first set the country codemkgmap:country!=* & mkgmap:admin_level2=* { set mkgmap:country='${mkgmap:admin_level2}' }mkgmap:country!=* & addr:country=* { set mkgmap:country='${addr:country}' }mkgmap:country!=* & is_in:country=* { set mkgmap:country='${is_in:country}' }
An example city is Danbury:http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/33271879which has the country set:is_in:countryUSAis_in:country_codeUSI think it should be picking up the country from these tags. I'll have to run some tests to see why this isn't happening.

I have once tried to find what are they for but failed. I would suggest

to not use --country-xxx or --region-xxx in command line options. I

think the real definitions are inside style, see include/address file:

# United States

mkgmap:country=USA & mkgmap:region!=* & mkgmap:admin_level4=* { set

mkgmap:region='${mkgmap:admin_level4}' }

I think that setting country or region in options can damage these

rules. Or create some inconsistency in map.
