[mkgmap-dev] Commit r3971: - roadNameConfig_v1.patch by Carlos Davida which adds more countries and languages

From Dave Swarthout daveswarthout at gmail.com on Wed Jun 14 16:25:06 BST 2017

Is anyone interested in adding a section for Thailand?I don't know how to
add them to the configuration file <g>.

There are only a few prefixes in use in Thailand, the most common by far is
"thanon" (ถนน = road), and a few names begin with "soi" (ซอย = lane). Most
often you find the word "soi" at the end of a street name, for example,
Thanon Mahidol Soi 5 (Mahidol Road Lane 5).

Having just those two prefixes in play would help a lot.
