A rule-based renderer for OSM data.
Smrender is a powerful, flexible, and modular rule-based data processing and rendering engine for OSM data. It is mainly intended to create paper charts for print-out but it can be used for a lot of other tasks as well. Because of its very generic and modular software design it is perfectly suitable for complex OSM data processing and manipulation tasks such as filtering, modification, and statistical analysis.
You can find some charts here: prerendered charts. The most accurate charts are the yellow map style charts of Croatia (updated on 29th of April 2015), which are based on the official sheet lines: Croation sea charts. You can find some other examples here: chart samples.
The latest snapshots of version 4.1 of Smrender are found in the current/ directory.
Older versions of Smrender have been moved to the archive/ directory.
Compile and Install
If Smrender shall be used only for data manipulations, it does not have any
dependencies. But if used to produce charts which is the most common case,
Smrender depends on the following packages which have to be installed before
To compile and install from the tarball:
./configure make make install
If it was checked out from SVN or GIT: run
/autoconf.sh first (you have to
have the GNU Autotools installed in this case.).
See documentation for more information.
