[mkgmap-dev] Split gmapsupp.img

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Mon Oct 19 19:37:21 BST 2020

MapInstall cannot be scripted to create a gmapsupp.img (plus setting it up
on linux is a pain). I'm pretty sure the <4GB gmapsupp part files -
shouldn't be too difficult if mkgmap can associate the address index for
the choses tiles only.
Right now for scripting I can only see how to create gmapsupp part files
without address search.

Cutting Europe into smaller parts using osmcut or similar takes quite a lot
of time, plus if you compile a full map of Europe anyhow already - would
kinda double the work. And you would need to adapt the area rather often as
osm data increases...
Having mkgmap split the map into parts would be great therefore (and also
put out some sort of parts.list similar to the areas.list from splitter
would be even better).
