C++/Python toolkit for developing GIS applications (doc)

Mapnik is an OpenSource C++/Python toolkit for developing GIS (Geographic Information Systems) applications. At the core is a C++ shared library providing algorithms/patterns for spatial data access and visualization.

Essentially a collection of geographic objects (map, layer, datasource, feature, geometry), the library doesn't rely on "windowing systems" and is intended to work in multi-threaded environments

High-level Python bindings (boost.python) facilitate rapid application development, targeting zope3, django, etc.

This package contains developer documentation.

Package version:2.0.0+ds1-3


This directory contains a simple c++ program demonstrating the Mapnik C++ API. It mimics the python '' example with a couple exceptions.

To build it re-configure SCons with DEMO=True then rebuild::

    $ python scons/ configure DEMO=True
    $ python scons/

The sample program will be compiled (but not installed).

To run::

    $ cd demo/c++
    $ ./rundemo /usr/loca


These files are for testing various rendering parts of mapnik, they have been created by hand.
The raw files are in the raw/ folder (they were created with inkscape to assist!)
Run the script to regenerate the shape files from the gml files, this requires ogr2ogr to run.

This directory contains a sample python script implementing the Mapnik API.

The script is thoroughly commented and also acts as a mini tutorial.  Reading
it should get you on your way, and you can use it as a base for your work.

You must compile and install mapnik and the python bindings FIRST.

Once this is done, run it:

/path/to/python rund
