Mapnik 2.1.0

Not yet released

  • Feature-level compositing (comp-op) for all symbolizers (except building) in AGG and Cairo renderers (#1409)

  • Style-level compositing (comp-op) (#1409) and style-level opacity for AGG renderer (#314)

  • New experimental framework for image manipulation called image-filters to allow things to be done across entire layer canvas like burring (#1412)

  • Support for recoloring stroke, fill, and opacity of SVG files (#1410 / #659)

  • Support for data-driven transform expressions (#664)

  • New support for offsetting geometries / parallel lines in line_symbolizer (#927/#1269)

  • New support for clipping geometries - now default enabled on all symbolizers (#1116)

  • Framework for chainable geometry transformations (called vertex_converters) so that you can do things like clip, smooth, and offset at the same time (#927)

  • WKT parsing now is more robust and supports multi-geometries (#745)

  • New support for outputting WKT/WKB/GeoJSON from mapnik.Geometry objects (#1411)

  • New experimental python datasource plugin (#1337)

  • New experimental geojson datasource plugin using in-memory rtree indexing (#1413)

TODO - fill these out more:

  • svg Transform per-sym
  • data-driven transforms as well
  • cairo more synced up
  • geometry closed
  • feature api better - context's provide schema support

  • Support in the CSV plugin for reading JSON encoded geometries (#1392)

  • Increased grid encoding performance (#1315)

  • Added support for setting opacity dynamically on images in polygon pattern and markers symbolizers

  • Added support for filtering on a features geometry type, either point, linestring, 'polygon, orcollectionusing the expression keyword of[mapnik::geometry_type]` (#546)

  • MarkersSymbolizer width and height moved to expressions (#1102)

  • PostGIS: Added 'simplify_geometries' option - will trigger ST_Simplify on geometries before returning to Mapnik (#1179)

  • Improved error feedback for invalid values passed to map.query_point

  • Fixed rendering of thin svg lines (#1129)

  • Improved logging/debugging system with release logs and file redirection ( (#937 and partially #986, #467)

  • GDAL: allow setting nodata value on the fly (will override value if nodata is set in data) (#1161)

  • GDAL: respect nodata for paletted/colormapped images (#1160)

  • PostGIS: Added a new option called 'autodetect_key_field' (by default false) that if true will trigger autodetection of a given tables' primary key allowing for to represent globally unique ids. This option has no effect if the user has not manually supplied the 'key_field' option. (#804)

  • Cairo: Add full rendering support for markers to match AGG renderer functionality (#1071)

  • Fix Markers rendering so that ellipse height/width units are pixels (previously were unintentionally radii) (#1134)

Mapnik 2.0.2

Released Aug 3, 2012

(Packaged from adb2ec741)

  • Fixed handling of empty WKB geometries (#1334)

  • Fixed naming of stroke-dashoffset in save_map (cc3cd5f63f28)

  • Fixed support for boost 1.50 (8dea5a5fe239233)

  • Fixed TextSymbolizer placement in Cairo backend so it respects avoid-edges and minimum-padding across all renderers (#1242)

  • Fixed ShieldSymbolizer placement so it respects avoid-edges and minimum-padding across all renderers (#1242)

  • Rolled back change made in 2.0.1 to marker width/height meaning that Mapnik > 2.0.2 will stick to assuming width/heigh are radii for back compatibility with 2.0.0. The reverted change is seen below as "Fix Markers rendering so that ellipse height/width units are pixels (previously were unintentionally radii)". Issue tracking this is #1163

  • XML: Fixed to avoid throwing if a <Parameters> element is encountered (which is supported in >= 2.1.x)

  • Support for PostGIS 2.0 in the pgsql2sqlite command (e69c44e/47e5b3c)

  • Fixed reference counting of Py_None when returning null attributes from Postgres during UTFGrid encoding, which could cause a Fatal Python error: deallocating None (#1221)

  • Fixed possible breakage registering plugins via python if a custom PREFIX or DESTDIR was used (e.g. macports/homebrew) (#1171)

  • Fixed memory leak in the case of proj >= 4.8 and a projection initialization error (#1173)

Mapnik 2.0.1

Released April 10, 2012

(Packaged from 57347e9106)

  • Support for PostGIS 2.0 (#956,#1083)

  • Switched back to "libmapnik" and "import mapnik" rather than "mapnik2" (mapnik2 will still work from python) (#941)

Mapnik 2.0.0

Released September 26, 2011

(Packaged from 5b4c20eab3)

  • Add minimum-path-length property to text_symbolizer to allow labels to be placed only on lines of a certain length (#865)

  • Add support for png quantization using fixed palettes (#843)

  • Add AlsoFilter functionality -

  • SQLite Plugin: optimize i/o using shared cache and no mutexes (#797)

  • Directly link input plugins to libmapnik to avoid having to set dlopen flags from binding languages (#790)

  • Throw an error during registration for fonts which Freetype2 does not report a family or style name (r2985).

  • Fixed quoting syntax for "table"."attribute" in PostGIS plugin (previously if table aliases were used quoting like "table.attribute" would cause query failure) (r2979).

  • Added the ability to control the PostGIS feature id by suppling a key_field to reference and integer attribute name (r2979).

  • Added alternative, more robust proj_transform functions to project a bbox using more points than just the four corners to ensure an optimally sized bbox despite proj4 out of bounds conditions. (olt)

  • Added map.base parameter that can be set to control where files with relative paths should be interpreted from when a map is loaded from a string or saved to a string. It defaults to an empty string which means that the base path will be the current working directory of the mapnik process. When a stylesheet is read from a file that files directory is used. And a custom value can still be passed as an argument to load_map_from_string().

  • Added python function 'render_grid' to allow conversion of grid buffer to python object containing list of grid pixels, list of keys, and a and dictionary of feature attributes.

  • Added new rendering backend, grid_renderer, that collects the attributes of rendered features and burns their ids into a grid buffer.

  • Added optional 'maximum-extent' parameter to map object. If set will be used, instead of combined layer extents, for return value of map.zoom_all(). Useful in cases where the combined layer extents cannot possibly be projected into the map srs or the user wishes to control map bounds without modifying the extents of each layer.

  • Support for NODATA values with grey and rgb images in GDAL plugin (#727)

  • Print warning if invalid XML property names are used (#110)

  • Made XML property names use consistent dashes, never underscores (#644)

  • TextSymbolizer: Change text_convert to text_transform to better match css naming (r2211)

  • Shapefile Plugin: Throw error if attribute name is requested that does not exist (#604)

  • Upgraded to the latest proj4 string literal for EPSG:4326 (WGS84) as global default projection (#333)

  • Added 'mapnik_version_from_string()' function in python bindings to easily convert string representation of version number to the integer format used in 'mapnik/version.hpp'. e.g. '0.7.1' --> 701.

  • Added xinclude ( support to libxml2-based xml parser (oldtopos) (#567)

  • Optimized rendering speeds by avoiding locking in the projection code (r2063) (r2713)

  • Added support for setting global alignment of polygon pattern fills (#203)

Mapnik 0.7.1

Released March 23, 2010

(Packaged from r1745/db89f1ca75)

  • Rasters: Various fixes and improvements to 8bit png output (#522,#475)

  • XML: Save map buffer_size when serializing map.

  • SCons: Added new build options 'PRIORITIZE_LINKING' and 'LINK_PRIORITY'. The first is a boolean (default True) of whether to use the new sorting implementation that gives explcit preference to custom or local paths during compile and linking that will affect builds when duplicate libraries and include directories are on the system. LINK_PRIORITY defaults to prioritizing internal sources of the mapnik source folder, then local/user installed libraries over system libraries, but the option can be customized. Sorting not only ensures that compiling and linking will more likely match the desired libraries but also gives more likelyhood to avoid the scenario where libraries are linked that don't match the includes libmapnik compiled against.

  • XML: Fixed behavior of PolygonPatternSymbolizer and LinePatternSymbolizer whereby width, height, and type of images is actually allowed to be optionally ommitted (#508). This was added in r1543 but only worked correctly for PointSymbolizer and ShieldSymbolizer.

  • Fixed reading of PostGIS data on Big Endian systems (#515)

  • PostGIS: Added better support for alterative schemas (#500)

  • AGG Renderer - Enforced default gamma function on all symbolizers to ensure proper antialiasing even when gamma is modified on the PolygonSymbolizer. (#512)

  • PNG: fixed png256 for large images and some improvements to reduce color corruptions (#522)

  • PNG: Added new quantization method for indexed png format using hextree with full support for alpha channel. Also new method has some optimizations for color gradients common when using elevation based rasters. By default old method using octree is used. (r1680, r1683, #477)

  • PNG: Added initial support for passing options to png writter like number of colors, transparency support, quantization method and possibly other in future using type parameter. For example "png8:c=128:t=1:m=h" limits palette to 128 colors, uses only binary transparency (0 - none, 1 - binary, 2 - full), and new method of quantization using hextree (h - hextree, o - octree). Existing type "png256" can be also written using "png8:c=256:m=o:t=2" (r1680, r1683, #477)

Mapnik 0.7.0

Released January, 19 2010

(Packaged from r1574/a0da946be9)

  • Core: Fixed linking to external libagg (r1297,r1299)

  • Core: Completed full support for PPC (Big endian) architectures (r1352 -> r1357)

  • Gdal Plugin: Added support for Gdal overviews, enabling fast loading of > 1GB rasters (#54)

    • Use the gdaladdo utility to add overviews to existing GDAL datasets
  • PostGIS: Added an optional 'geometry_table' parameter. The 'geometry_table' used by Mapnik to look up metadata in the geometry_columns and calculate extents (when the 'geometry_field' and 'srid' parameters are not supplied). If 'geometry_table' is not specified Mapnik will attempt to determine the name of the table to query based on parsing the 'table' parameter, which may fail for complex queries with more than one 'from' keyword. Using this parameter should allow for existing metadata and table indexes to be used while opening the door to much more complicated subqueries being passed to the 'table' parameter without failing (#260, #426).

  • PostGIS Plugin: Added optional 'geometry_field' and 'srid' parameters. If specified these will allow Mapnik to skip several queries to try to determine these values dynamically, and can be helpful to avoid possible query failures during metadata lookup with complex subqueries as discussed in #260 and #436, but also solvable by specifying the 'geometry_table' parameter. (r1300,#376)

  • PostGIS: Added an optional 'extent_from_subquery' parameter that when true (while the 'extent' parameter is not provided and 'estimate_extent' is false) will direct Mapnik to calculate the extent upon the exact table or sql provided in the 'table' parameter. If a sub-select is used for the table parameter then this will, in cases where the subquery limits results, provide a faster and more accurate layer extent. It will have no effect if the 'table' parameter is simply an existing table. This parameter is false by default. (#456)

  • PostGIS Plugin: Added '!bbox!' token substitution ability in sql query string. This opens the door for various complex queries that may aggregate geometries to be kept fast by allowing proper placement of the bbox query to be used by indexes. (#415)

    • Pass the bbox token inside a subquery like: !bbox!

    • Valid Usages include:

      (Select ST_Union(geom) as geom from table where ST_Intersects(geometry,!bbox!)) as map

      (Select * from table where geom && !bbox!) as map

  • PostGIS Plugin: Added 'scale_denominator' substitution ability in sql query string (#415/#465)

    • Pass the scale_denominator token inside a subquery like: !scale_denominator!

    • e.g. (Select * from table where field_value > !scale_denominator!) as map

  • PostGIS Plugin: Added support for quoted table names (r1454) (#393)

  • PostGIS: Add a 'persist_connection' option (default true), that when false will release the idle psql connection after datasource goes out of scope (r1337) (#433,#434)

  • PostGIS: Added support for BigInt (int8) postgres type (384)

  • PostGIS Plugin: Throw and report errors if SQL execution fails (r1291) (#363, #242)

  • PostGIS Plugin: Fixed problem in conversion of long numbers to strings (r1302,1303)

  • PostGIS Plugin: Added missing support for BigInt(int8) postgres datatypes (r1250) (#384)

  • OGR Plugin: Added support for reading multipoint features (#458)

  • Shape Plugin: Fixed bug in file extension stripping (#413)

  • Shape Plugin: Fixed missing compiler flags that causes crashing on newer g++ versions (#436)

  • PNG: Fixed problem with garbled/striped png256 output along sharp edges(#416,#445,#447,#202)

  • PNG: Added support for semi-transparency in png256 output (#477,#202)

  • PolygonSymbolizer: Added 'gamma' attribute to allow for dilation of polygon edges - a solution to gap artifacts or "ghost lines" between adjacent polygons and allows for slight sharpening of the edges of non overlapping polygons. Accepts any values but 0-1 is the recommended range.

  • TextSymbolizer: Large set of new attributes: 'text_transform', 'line_spacing', 'character_spacing', 'wrap_character', 'wrap_before', 'horizontal_alignment', 'justify_alignment', and 'opacity'.

    • More details at changesets: r1254 and r1341
  • SheildSymbolizer: Added special new attributes: 'unlock_image', 'VERTEX' placement, 'no_text' and many attributes previously only supported in the TextSymbolizer: 'allow_overlap', 'vertical_alignment', 'horizontal_alignment', 'justify_alignment', 'wrap_width', 'wrap_character', 'wrap_before', 'text_transform', 'line_spacing', 'character_spacing', and 'opacity'.

    • More details at changeset r1341
  • XML: Added support for using CDATA with libxml2 parser (r1364)

  • XML: Fixed memory leak in libxml2 implementation (#473)

  • XML: Added function to serialize map to string, called 'mapnik.save_map_to_string()' (#396)

  • XML: Added parameter to called 'minimum_version' to allow for enforcing the minimum Mapnik version needed for XML features used in the mapfiles. Uses Major.Minor.Point syntax, for example would throw an error if the user is running Mapnik less than 0.6.1.

  • XML: Added support for relative paths when using entities and 'mapnik.load_map_from_string()' (#440)

  • XML: Made width and height optional for symbolizers using images (r1543)
