hi menion,

i'm preparing offline-maps and POIs for a trip to tokyo and some other japanese cities.
yesterday i was thinking about adding POIs for the tokyo metro stations and started searching google for some data and/or information.

this is what i found: ... applet.xml
on the right side is a link to the source where you can grap this: ... applet.kml

perfect! 290 POIs and 13 tracks in 1 file :mrgreen:

i converted it to gpx and imported the file with locus. worked great, as always ;)
but, i think you can imagine how it looks when you activate 290 POIs at once! a totally mess :lol:

the 13 lines of the tokyo metro are distinguishable by different colors, so i created 13 new POI icons in different colors, splitted the gpx file into 13 new files, created 13 categories and imported the data. looks much better now! ;)

BUT, its annoying to disable / enable 13 categories:
1. open the category popup >
2. pick a category >
3. disable/enable POIs with this invert button >
4. go back to the map >
5. restart at 1 >

so, it would be great if you could add a disable/enable checkbox to the category popup! :mrgreen:

a grouping function for similar categories would be great too! something like this:
+ Tokyo Metro
--- Tokyo Metro Line A
--- Tokyo Metro Line C
--- Tokyo Metro Line E
+ Another Category
+ Another Category

hmm, long posting for such a short request... sorry about that :mrgreen:
