[mkgmap-dev] OptionsFrom Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Sat Dec 8 18:04:48 GMT 2012
Here is my take on it for changes that are different or other input compared to the wiki: --country-name=? --- Well I use the cities list, but actually I would prefer this option for single country maps to take preference. I don't think the region--name is very important, because the search function doesn't allow to search for a region like Bayern, Hessen, or other regions. So I don't use it for my region maps of Germany. --latin1 / codepage, --- make latin1/1252 default. Remove --latin1 as option. And only take code-page as option . latin1 is the same as 1252 isn't it (I think this was changed some time ago, because it once was different) --index --- Default on if --route is given, default off if map is not routable (or does an address index make sense if map is not routable?). New option --no-index --location-autofil :: If I understand right, it is still a backup if bounds fail. I currently use --location-autofill=bounds,is_in,nearest because I want is_in first, secon nearest to provide the location if the precompiled bounds fail. Maybe make that behaviour default if --bounds=... is set. I think that is the approach most people want (noone updates the bounds as often as the map data - so it is likely to still add an --drive-on-left, --drive-on-right -- Could this be included into the country abbr list we have in the resources - there are not so many drive-on-left countries anyhow, so we just add them, and assume drive-on-right for all other countries. Option is a very bad idea, because you can't use it for a map of europe (or other multi country regions). --ignore-maxspeeds , Strong Objection. For a bicycle map it is really needed. I don't want mkgmap messing around with maxspeeds. It's also about performance, why calculate something if it's not needed. --ignore-turn-restrictions ,Strong Objection again. We don't have separate turn-restrictions for cyclists or pedestrians yet, so don't default it car centric. Currently as a cyclist, I'm better off if the map ignores turn-restrictions for cars. (many many oneway streets don't apply for cycling, but there are restrictions for cars in OSM at those crossings). --preserve-element-order , is it really not faster without it. Maybe have it on by default, but change option to --dont--preserve-elelement-order --process-destination -- Again for a cyclemap not needed (destination usually only exists for cars so far). Dunno if it impacts performance or not. --delete-tags-file= It's a performance improvement. However it was once broken. Someone said it's working again. I once moved it into my style where it makes more sense. Don't know how much quicker it can make mkgmap. --show-profiles=1 --- keep it. I need it differently depending on the country or map. Don't put options that one needs differently depending on the country into the style-file...
