eaching how to leverage Mapnik for custom map design
FOSS4G, the annual international OSGeo conference on open source mapping software, is coming up in just three weeks in Denver, CO. We’ll be there talking about our mapping stack, as well as some of the open source tools that power it.
Rendering OpenStreetMap with PostGIS in TileMill
Because the workshop machines are Windows, each participant will be equipped with a VirtualBox machine with the latest Ubuntu release with Mapnik, TileMill, PostGIS, and OpenStreetMap data running and ready to go. Download the TileMill 0.3 VM at support.mapbox.com if you’d like to play around with the exact machine we will be using. This three hour workshop will take place Tuesday, September 13 at 8:00 am, and you can find out more about it on the FOSS4G website. You must also pre-register for this and all workshops, and we recommend you do that soon before they fill up. I will also post tutorials from the workshop online and available to download after the conference.
We’ll also be leading two sessions at the FOSS4G conference. Tom will talk about how to turn data into beautiful maps, and AJ will discuss advanced cartography for the web.
