[mkgmap-dev] Special cases with LocationHook

From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Sun Jul 15 08:21:56 BST 2018

Hi all, 

while looking at the problem reported by Henning I've noticed a few special cases. Please comment:
1) The current code tries to set the mkgmap:admin_level? tags for generated ways with natural=sea.
Does that make sense? Sometimes it works, esp. when the polygon is close to the coast.

2) The current code may fail to set mkgmap:admin_levelx tags  for ways with natural=land generated by SeaGenerator
even if these polygons are clearly inside a country boundary. It happens when the generated way is outside the (calculated) bounding box 
of all nodes in input file, but inside the tile boundary. Such a tile is produced by splitter when you split e.g. Canada without
trimming the tiles. Some tiles will cover large parts of the USA.
This potential problem was introduced with r3861 : http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/websvn/revision.php?repname=mkgmap&rev=3861
