[mkgmap-dev] Road speed through urban areas

Hi Fernando

The mkgmap default style doesn't understand maxspeed:practical.

If you are currently using the default style, it is easiest to make a
complete copy of the subdirectory
mkgmap-rXXXX/examples/styles/default into your own working area
subdirectory, eg 'lowspeed', point the --style-file option at this and
then modify as necessary.

You should be able to confine all your changes to
lowspeed/inc/roadspeed and not need to touch lowspeed/lines.

See tags mkgmap:road-speed, mkgmap:road-speed-class, mkgmap:road-speed
-max etc in the style manual (mkgmap-rXXXX/doc/style-manual.pdf)

Maybe make use of the new is-in function, eg:

highway=secondary & is_in(landuse, residential, any)
   {add mkgmap:road-speed=-1}
