planet.bin is too large for fat32 file systems

Reported by: renzo Owned by: cp15
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.5.1
Component: mapdrivers/OSM Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords: download
Cc: nick@…


Planet.bin became larger than 4GB. It should be a good idea to provide two pre-processed maps along with planet.bin. one (planet.eaaa.bin, planet europe/asia/africa/australia) 25W to 169E and one (planet.americas.bin) 169E to 25W. In this way it is possible to download the entire planet maps and store them on fat32 file systems.

We need to keep this issue in mind esp. for the download managers, to avoid conflicts.

I wonder if a real use case of this is valid : having planet.bin is sometimes convenient, but who really needs to be able to compute routes across the planet, on a device using fat32 ?

Please reopen if a use case shows up.
