[mkgmap-dev] polygon to point?

From Christoph Wagner freemaps.osm at googlemail.com on Wed Apr 22 10:06:26 BST 2009

hello list,

I have a question about mkgmap.
Is there a possibility to get the information of an area in OSM
converted to a point on garmin? This would be very usefull for example
to find Car parks or camp sites or buildings tagged for example with
amenity=restaurant etc. in the garmin menue.
If such a feature does not exist, would it be possible to implement it
with few effort?

The best algorithm would be to take the geometric middle of the polygon
and place a point there. The User should be able to customize which
garmin type this point gets based on the tags of the polygon.
The polygon should also be able to get a polygon type if it was used to
create such a point.
