Smrender

A rule-based renderer for OSM data.

Description

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.

Download

The latest snapshots of version 4.1 of Smrender are found in the current/ directory.

With February 2016, the primary project page of Smrender was moved to Github. The old page is found at Abenteueland which I will keep up for a while.

Older versions of Smrender have been moved to the archive/ directory.

Documentation

The latest documentation for version 4.0 is found in the doc/ folder of the source repository. You directly view it here as HTML page or here as PDF document.

Compile and Install

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.

Bugs

Smrender seems not to work in non-memory-mapped mode. As a workaround, simply just always use the option -M.
