[mkgmap-dev] DEM bug at 50°N

From Bernhard Hiller bhil at gmx.de on Tue Apr 10 12:30:49 BST 2018

Hi Gerd,

I created the map again, but now including L31-N31 zipped DEM files 
(because the far west end of my map is just west of 6E, which was not 
included before, but did not produce warn messages either).

Further analysis with this new map shows that the same DEM tile of 1x1° 
gets repeated (it is different from the tile in the previous map).
That can be clearly seen in areas without osm data, i.e. where the map 
shows relief only. The screen shot for 48N 7E does not differ from 48N 
6E or 49N 6E.
I hope this helps to narrow down the location of the bug.

Kind regards,
