[Loadstone] What data to get from map provider to create a navigable route for a city

Hi

It would helps if LS could recognize start point, cross points and end point
of a street after entering the coordinates. So it could tell us when turning
left or right or crossing to the next street.

Currently Loadstone doesn't plot routes, mainly for the reason you suggest,
it doesn't know about streets. The point share site can handle street data
and at some point in the future we hope to be able to do things like plot
routes. As for obtaining data, for any areas where we don't have data almost
anything is better than nothing. Since this data can be processed by the
point share site into a loadstone formatted file we can take almost
anything.
