but they are ugly, and include only bigger towns. at least in germany. 
if anybody needs a map of greifswald or ilmenau just drop me a mail 
(but i dont think so ;-)

i know this script. good luck with it. my first impression was, that it 
is pretty messy, but import routines are never really readable ;-).

i dont know, what i like is the fact that they are vectors, one could 
do a lot with those informations. btw does anybody know whether it is 
possible to extract maps from a commercial program such as map & guide 
or another routing program?

i am just back from a test drive.... it should be working now. i just 
overwrote the old 0.04a version on the server, since my version did not 
add anything other than bugfixes. just download it again.
