[mkgmap-dev] closed ways and multi-polygon relations

From Ticker Berkin rwb-mkgmap at jagit.co.uk on Thu Nov 22 18:16:20 GMT 2018

Hi Gerd

What I was expecting was that multiPolygonRelation generates 1 closed
way per distinct outer polyon and this has just the tags of the
relation. This is passed to 'lines' and 'polygons' matching.

My example is relation/1371699 which uses 9 ways (a mix of existing
roads and ways just created for the purpose) as outers to define a
single polygon.

What I'm seeing, with these in 'lines':

name='Littleton' & place=village & is_closed()=true {echotags
name='Littleton' & place=village & is_closed()=false {echotags
name='Littleton' & place=village [0x12 resolution 22]

1/ is no output from lineLitVilTrue

2/ 9 identical ways from lineLitVilFalse; I've removed some admin tags:
Way generated from 1371699 [landuse=residential,
mkgmap:cache_area_size=99714.294, mkgmap:mp_created=true,
mkgmap:stylefilter=polyline, name=Littleton, place=village]
Way generated from 1371699 [landuse=residential,
mkgmap:cache_area_size=99714.294, mkgmap:mp_created=true,
mkgmap:stylefilter=polyline, name=Littleton, place=village]

3/ using GPSMapEdit, the generated line looks to be in 4 segments, some
of the outers from the relation have been joined, but it looks like it
has avoided joining where the base way tags conflict.

With this in 'polygons':
name='Littleton' & place=village {echotags 'polyLitVil'}
 and, as in default style:
place=village [0x03 resolution 22]

I get:
JoinedWay generated from 94665254 [landuse=residential,
mkgmap:cache_area_size=99714.294, mkgmap:mp_created=true,
mkgmap:stylefilter=polygon, name=Littleton, place=village] polyLitVil

which is as expected, and it shows correctly on the map.

I'm pretty sure the relation and have just loaded the latest data from
geofabrik .

I get about 4500 messages running 1 map tile with this in 'lines':
mkgmap:mp_created=true & is_closed()=false {echotags 'mpNotClosed'}
