[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.
