Node-Mapnik

Bindings to the Mapnik tile rendering library for node.

    var mapnik = require('mapnik');
    var http = require('http');

    var port = 8000;
    var stylesheet = './examples/stylesheet.xml';

    http.createServer(function(req, res) {
      res.writeHead(500, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
      var map = new mapnik.Map(256, 256);
      map.load(stylesheet,
        function(err,map) {
          if (err) {
              res.end(err.message);
          }
          map.zoomAll();
          var im = new mapnik.Image(256, 256);
          map.render(im, function(err,im) {
            if (err) {
                res.end(err.message);
            } else {
                im.encode('png', function(err,buffer) {
                    if (err) {
                        res.end(err.message);
                    } else {
                        res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'image/png'});
                        res.end(buffer);
                    }
                });
            }
          });
       }
      );
    }).listen(port);
