[mkgmap-dev] possible echotags enhancement?

From Ranko Jaksic rjaksic at zgi.hr on Fri Jun 19 12:17:03 BST 2020

Hi Gerd,

Thanks, this is exactly what I need!

I tested "Node generated from" and it works as expected.
Before I couldn't determine if a node was generated from a way or a relation so my script always generated 2 href links (for both way and relation).
One link would work and the other not. Now I can always generate only one (correct!) link :)

See example.zip in attachment: log.txt is the original echotags text log. From this I generate a log.html at the end of every compile.
When you open log.html you can click on the link to open that element in OSM and quickly edit if needed.

I have no ready example for "(Joined)Way generated from" at the moment (I will test it when I find one),
but I think you can commit this change... :)
