[mkgmap-dev] House numbers

Hi Karl,

does that also mean you would also want to render the place name on all the unnamed roads which have a nearby addr:place address?

In my area there are lots of small places and someone mapped them using addr:street=<place name> and also name=<place name> on various roads. I found that very irritating since I knew that these roads don't have names. It took a lot of time to change the tagging to addr:place and remove the wrong road names since I had to visit all of them to make sure that there really was no sign stating the name.
I can't think of any reason to display a wrong road name. What am I missing here?

I tend to agree with Michel.
I can only look to Sweden and Poland where small locations have a name of the
place (addr:place), no streets/roads names but all houses on all those streets
have different numbers related to that place, rather than the normal relation
to a street/road.
