[mkgmap-dev] nearby-POI: What to do with several POI arranged on a circle?From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Thu May 7 10:12:59 BST 2020
Hi Ticker, I should have used amenity=bench in the example, this is a bit more realistic, but the default style doesn't generate a POI for that. I've found a rather simple iterative algo to fix the problem, but what I really wanted to point out is that the result can look really wrong. Benches are often arranged around something, e.g. a small lake/pond. I think nobody wants a map that shows a bench in the middle of a lake. OTHO, bus stops typically come in pairs, but maybe 50m apart. It seems reasonable to merge them in the middle.

Hi The problem is in the point grouping algo, rather than anything to do with the merge-at-mid-point option. Although an interesting problem to solve, it seems to be getting excessive. The simple logic in the last versions seemed to solve most users's problems and make them happy.
