In Mapnik 2.1 @herm vastly improved the XML error output. Currently we get something like:

RuntimeError: map.xml line 13 in node MarkersSymbolizer: marker-file could not be found: '...' in MarkersSymbolizer in style '1'

We can improve this:

  • Actual error should be first, meta info after
  • We should avoid the duplication of MarkersSymbolizer
  • We should quote the map.xml to enhance readibility
