[mkgmap-dev] Please help with news about new DEM optionsFrom Mike Baggaley mike at tvage.co.uk on Sat Feb 3 08:29:42 GMT 2018
Having read the explanation of --dem-dists I think that the default for when the option is not provided needs to be changed. The explanation says "mkgmap tries to determine a reasonable value based on the resolution found in the *.hgt files", but it also says "for gps devices you need one for each resolution given with the --levels option". It seems to me the default behaviour should be to produce a map suitable for GPS devices, and hence it should determine a set of values. I suggest renaming this option --dem-distances as its meaning is clearer. Also I suggest capitalising GPS. I suggest renaming --overview-dem-dist to --dem-overview-distance so that all the DEM options begin with --dem. I also suggest moving the explanation to immediately after --dem-dists. As --overview-levels allows multiple values, does the DEM overview level also allow multiple levels (in which case the name needs to be --dem-overview-distances)? If not, we need a mention why only a single value is needed. For the --dem-poly option, I suggest adding a mention that the areas.poly file produced by splitter can be used. Hope this helps, Mike -----Original Message----- From: Carlos Dávila [mailto:cdavilam at orangecorreo.es] Sent: 02 February 2018 21:33 To: mkgmap-dev at lists.mkgmap.org.uk Subject: Re: [mkgmap-dev] Please help with news about new DEM options El 30/01/18 a las 09:41, Gerd Petermann escribió: > Hi all, > > with r4093 I've merged the dem-tdb branch into trunk.
