[mkgmap-dev] Why is mkgmap the option --country-name=name

From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Fri Feb 2 21:50:53 GMT 2018

Hi Eugeny,

I think what you see in this list depends on the content of the  bounds file(s), your name-tag-list option,
the style, and the content of the osm input files. The string "Country" comes from the default for
country and missing information from the bounds. I think it happens when boundaries overlap.

When you are sure that all objects in the map are in one country you may add a rule to set
mkgmap:country to that name.
Hope this helps?

I'm downloading the former USSR
http://data.gis-lab.info/osm_dump/dump/latest/local.osm.pbf and using mkgmap
I create a directory of borders.
Then I download the Leningrad Region
http://data.gis-lab.info/osm_dump/dump/latest/RU-LEN.osm.pbf and create a
gmapsupp without the options --country-name = name and --country-abbr =
abbreviation .
Device Nuvi 1310 Where-> Address-> Change country. shows 4 country names:
"SUOMI", "Russian Federation", "Country" in English and "Estonia" in
If the Nuvi shows "Estonia" in Russian, that's why it doesn't show "Russia"
in Russian, and shows "Russian Federation" in English?
