Mapnik Maps on the Command-Line

Nik2img is a third-party program that allows you to easily generate mapnik graphics from Mapnik xml or Cascadenik mml.

  • No python coding is required, only a working Mapnik installation and an XML mapfile.
  • Nik2img has a variety of options that make it a useful mapfile debugger.
  • Using Nik2img is an easy way to test and develop your xml mapfiles before launching on a server.
  • Nik2img should automatically open the rendered map once completed.
  • Like Mapnik, it should run on both Mac, Linux, and Windows

To Install:

    $ sudo easy_install -U nik2img
