[mkgmap-dev] 0x10 for residential in default style

From Jeroen Muris jeroen at tweejee.net on Mon Feb 7 21:29:12 GMT 2011

Thank you for the quick response.

For now I'll keep using my own 0x01 for landuse=residential.

If the polygons styling needs work I'm willing to help. Just let me know 
what I can do.

Switching from landuse=residential to building=* may be a nice solution (I 
did not know it is possible), but I'm not sure what the results are when one 
of those is missing in OSM.

I'm afraid my TYP file is for newer models too, I made it for my own Oregon.

It is not. I just made it up, because it seemed to render fine in my
Edge 705.

Could be. I guess that we should revise the polygon rules very soon.

Do you agree with my idea that the landuse=residential and building=*
polygons should be mutually exclusive? That is, show only the
landuse=residential on higher zoom levels and only the buildings on
lower zoom levels?

Yes. We could have multiple TYP files for the default style. Minko's
Mapnik.TYP can be good for newer devices, while cferrero and I seem to
prefer simpler "non-spaghetti" layout that works on older devices.

I would prefer to have an open source TYP file generator or editor, so
that changes to the TYP file could be tracked. But I guess we can live
with binary-only TYP files, if there is no other choice.
