[mkgmap-dev] Curvy routing support: new function?

From WanMil wmgcnfg at web.de on Tue Jul 1 21:32:34 BST 2014

```Hi,

I remember that it is on my Todo-List :-)

So I performed a quick implementation following your suggestion. You can
find in the attached patch so that you can play a little bit with it.
(Attention: it is completely untested!!)
You can find a patched mkgmap.jar at http://files.mkgmap.org.uk/detail/215.

I think curviness should to be defined in a different way.
1. Calculate the distance of each point Dmiddle to the virtual line from
first to the last point.
2. curviness()=standard mean(Dmiddle/(length to next point + length to
previous point)

I think this gives a better indication how curviness a road is. But it
need to be implemented and tested later on :-)
