OpenStreetMap

highlighting and Marking Unnamed streets on Garmin ??

Posted by bri g on 6 November 2009 in English (English)

Okay - so I have been a bit busy trying to map kaduna. The ariel imagery was great and little has needed to be added, though I am collecting all my GPX traces for upload on my return to the UK.

What I have been adding is tags, local details, banks, hotels and street names etc.

When I downloaded the Nigeria map for Garmins ( IMG format ) from Cloudmade all the unnamed streets were highlighted in red which was really useful.

This download understandably is only updated weekly and I am currently completing nightly builds of Kaduna OSM, saving that ( from JOSM ) and using MKGMAP to convert to an IMG.

My question is, does anybody have a tool that will allow me to mimic Cloudmade's OSM to IMG tool and highlight streets in Red making my life a bit easier?

cheers bri

I use GroundTruth with a simple rules file to build a transparent overlay of unnamed roads (unclassified & residential only). The rules look something like this:

|-
| ResidentialRoadHighZoomNN
| {{tag|highway|residential}} and not {{tag|name}}
| 22
|
|
| "NO NAME"
| {{GroundTruthLineColor|#ff0011}}
| 3
|
|-

I use MapSource to upload my maps.

The http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/All_in_one_Garmin_Map has this, too.
Ok, unnamed streets are blue not red :-)
