[mkgmap-dev] default style improvements

From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Thu Dec 13 09:18:12 GMT 2018

Hi Ticker,

I think it is not a good idea to remove  highway=escape or highway=emergency_bay. The last time I looked at them most where correctly mapped.
I'd also remove horse=yes or horse=no unless you want evaluate that somewhere in the style. Don't know why it is in the current default style.
There is no code in mkgmap to evaluate it.

Reg. rules like
highway=footpath | highway=foot {set highway=footway}  # fix common bad tagging
I think we don't need them. Most of those ways are mapped by HOT projects, it is very likely that they are not connected or self intersecting etc.
I'd rather remove the mop up rule instead of adding a lot of "try to guess better" rules.

Hi Gerd

Here is revision to defaultStyleTidy3.patch. The changes are:

1/ change highway=trail to highway=path; add bicycle=no instead of
