[mkgmap-dev] [PATCH] Generate copies of ways using the relations style file *Experimental*

From Thilo Hannemann thannema at gmx.de on Wed Jun 3 18:34:39 BST 2009

The attached patch allows to generate ways from a relation. To do so  
simply write the way generating statement into your relations style  
file, e.g.

type=route & route=bicycle & network=tcn { name 'Touristic  
cycleroute' } [ 0x02 road_class=3 road_speed=6 level 3 ]

If one way is a member of several relations one copy of the way will  
be generated for each relation (and also another one if the way  
matches also in the lines style file).

The name of the generated way is the name of the relation. The access  
tag must be set explicitly in the relations style file, as (except the  
"oneway" tag) no tags are copied from the original way into the  
generated way.

I consider this patch experimental, but as I have it in use now for  
some days and it works fine I though I might publish it. It is really  
useful for cycle maps.
