A topographic map of Yosemite National Park and immediate surrounds.
The following are required:
- PostgreSQL with PostGIS
- A recent development build of TileMill. I used this one. The development build is required for some raster operations.
Note that so far this has only been tried on Mac OS X.
First download all of the data (~0.8Gb) for the map:
Then create the PostgreSQL/PostGIS database that will house the data:
Then populate the database:
Next, symlink the
tilemill-project directory into your TileMill projects, something like this:
$ cd ~/Documents/MapBox/project/ project$ ln -s ~/src/yosemite-map/tilemill-project/ yosemite
Then run TileMill and open the 'closedcontour - Yosemite' project.
The font styles in
style.mss call for fonts that may not be present on your system, feel free to modify.
Data for this map come from:
- Topographic Maps
- Park Boundary
- Giant Sequoias
- Park Landcover
- Picnic Areas
- Forest Service
- CALVEG Landcover
- Trails in Inyo, Sierra, Stanislaus, and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests
- Rock Climbs of Tuolumne Meadows, Don Reid and Chris Falkenstein
- Tuolumne Meadows dome names
A few Maki icons were used.
The following software has been used extensively in developing this map:
You can do whatever you want with the shell scripts.
