TopOSM

A system for rendering OpenStreetMap Based Topographic Maps

Requirements

TopOSM runs on Linux. It may be possible to build and run it on other platforms, but I have not tested this. If you try it, please let me know.

TopOSM depends on some fairly recent software, including:

  • Mapnik (2.0) with included patches and Cairo support
  • Python (2.6)
  • GDAL (1.7)
  • PostgreSQL + PostGIS
  • ImageMagick

(later versions than those mentioned above will probably work)

Installation

Required packages will vary depending on your distribution. For Ubuntu 11.04, this list of packages may be a good start:

python-mapnik mapnik-utils gdal-bin gdal-contrib python-gdal
libgdal-dev proj libproj-dev python-pyproj python-numpy imagemagick
gcc g++ optipng subversion postgresql postgresql-contrib
postgresql-server-dev-8.4 postgis wget libxml2-dev python-libxml2
libgeos-dev libbz2-dev make htop python-cairo python-cairo-dev
osm2pgsql unzip python-pypdf libboost-all-dev libicu-dev libpng-dev
libjpeg-dev libtiff-dev libz-dev libfreetype6-dev libxml2-dev
libproj-dev libcairo-dev libcairomm-1.0-dev python-cairo-dev
libpq-dev libgdal-dev libsqlite3-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev
libsigc++-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev ttf-sil-gentium
ttf-mscorefonts-installer "ttf-adf-*"

Set up PostgreSQL with PostGIS, see: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mapnik/PostGIS

Build local patched Mapnik

$ git clone https://github.com/mapnik/mapnik.git
$ cd mapnik
$ patch -p0 < <toposm-dir>/mapnik2_erase_patch.diff
$ python scons/scons.py configure \
    INPUT_PLUGINS=raster,osm,gdal,shape,postgis,ogr \
    PREFIX=$HOME PYTHON_PREFIX=$HOME
$ python scons/scons.py
$ python scons/scons.py install

If you need a more recent boost than available for your system, you can build one locally (i.e. with PREFIX=$HOME) and tell the mapnik configure step to link against that by adding:

BOOST_INCLUDES=$HOME/include BOOST_LIBS=$HOME/lib

Required data files

Configuring the Rendering Environment

Create the required directories for tiles and temp files:

$ mkdir -p temp tile

TopOSM is configured through environment variables. A template for this is included. Make a copy, modify it according to you system, and source it:

$ cp set-toposm-env.templ set-toposm-env
$ emacs set-toposm-env
$ . set-toposm-env

Import OSM data. The import will be cropped to the area specified in set-toposm-env.

$ ./import_planet geodata/osm/Planet.osm

The import script can also import OSM daily diffs (ending in .osc.gz).

Import NHD data:

$ ./import_nhd

Generate hillshade and colormaps:

$ ./prep_toposm_data

Add a shortcut for your area(s) of interest to areas.py.

Generate the mapnik style files from templates:

$ ./generate_xml

(you need to do this every time you modify the styles in the templates and include directories)

Create contour tables and generate contour lines, for example:

$ ./prep_contours_table
$ ./toposm.py prep WhiteMountains

To render tiles for the specified area and zoom levels:

$ ./toposm.py render WhiteMountains 5 15

To render a PDF, use renderToPdf() in toposm.py
