We cannot implement this feature. The correct level of administrative boundary changes from one country to the other. It is difficult to find a algorithm that works over the whole world.

I agree with d2. I propose to close this task as "Cancelled".

I don't think this is possible in a reliable manner. In the current MapOSMatic version, we've tried to filter out what a "city" is, by selecting only admin_level 8, but it turned out to be incorrect for many countries in the world.

Therefore, there isn't an uniform and coherent mechanism to determine to which city a particular street belongs too, so I don't think this feature can really be implemented correctly.

IMO, MapOSMatic is really primarily designed for admin boundary based renderings. The fact that bbox rendering are crappy should not be an incentive to add more crappiness into MapOSMatic, but rather should be an incentive to add more admin boundaries into OSM.

Suggestion from Simon Reau: In bbox mode, the CSV can contain streets from different cities. Either sort these entries by city name, or add another column for the city name.
