The polygon map/Han support
Let's try some non-Latin scripts ...
projection = equalarea size = 600 600 lat = 60 20 long = 120 150 out = jpkr7.png background = political cities = data/cities.jp locale = jp clabels borders font = ../fonts/kochi-gothic.ttf
Well, it's not perfect. Label for Japan is much too small. No labels for Japanese islands yet.
As for cities, except for the obvious ones like Toukyou, I don't know kanji names for Japanese cities. And I definitely don't know how are Japanese calling Chinese and Korean cities (Russian aren't that hard - they never had own Han writing).
Vertical labels should be seriously considered.
