[mkgmap-dev] polygon to point?From Mike setimike at gmail.com on Wed Apr 22 10:39:42 BST 2009
We already have this with the --add-pois-to-areas option. It will create a poi for certain polygon areas in osm. I know it works for me, What garmin types get assigned to what key=value pairs is based on the style information in the resources/styles directory. --Mike O.
