A TileMill/Carto style for OpenStreetMap PostGIS databases
This style has been designed to work with a PostGIS database created with osm2pgsql. Test databases used the default import style file.
Python >= 2.6 (for setting up styles)
TileMill >= 0.5.x
OSM Extract imported into postgres
Setup (for TileMill)
Download and the styles:
git clone git://github.com/mapbox/open-streets-style.git
Download the osm shapefiles into the layers sub-directory:
cd open-streets-style/open-streets mkdir layers cd layers wget http://tilemill-data.s3.amazonaws.com/osm/processed_p.zip unzip processed_p.zip wget http://tilemill-data.s3.amazonaws.com/osm/shoreline_300.zip unzip shoreline_300.zip cd ../../
Now edit the
configure.py so the database and shapefiles settings match your setup.
Make sure you can connect with the same set of options on the command line like:
Note: host, user, and password are often optional, but on some systems required. It depends on your postgres setup. Just be sure to understand you setup before blindly continuing.
Then run the script which will fixup your shapefile paths and database connection settings in the styles 'mml' file.
Now copy or link the projection subdirectory called 'open-streets' into your TileMill projects directory at:
You can make a symlink like:
ln -s `pwd`/open-streets ~/Documents/MapBox/project/open-streets
Now go start TileMill and you should see the project available.
If your map appears blank then you likely have some error preventing the stylesheet from loading for the first time. Since you loaded the stylesheet through a backdoor symlink TileMill cannot protect you from manual setup errors.
