Anaximander the Grid Cartographer is a map tile generator for InWorldz and OpenSimulator servers using compiled D and the ImageMagick library, utilizing parallel processing and advanced tree data structures to generate only what is needed in as short a time as possible.

For installation and building instructions, please see the Anaximander wiki.

For the history buffs: Anaximander was an early Greek scholar and philosopher who is credited as being one of, if not the, first to draw a map of the world.

Supported operating systems

At this time, only the following operating systems are being supported and tested:

  • Ubuntu Linux 14.04 and newer
  • Microsoft Windows 7
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2

Open source contributions are very welcome - especially as regards testing on other operating systems. For Apple OS lovers: while I use a Mac myself, this program was developed because the original PHP scripts were not only very slow, but they were Linux-only and I had a need for a version that would run under Windows Server. This kills two birds with one stone, but the third got away because I wasn't aiming for him!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
