CouchDB & Mapnik

Requirements

TODO

  • Track down the cause of this warning:
ERROR 1: FetchNextRowsSpatialFilter() failed : not_found, missing handler: _spatial
  • Add support for geocouch (which will likely remove the above warning)

Usage

Create a couch document for a given shapefile:

ogr2ogr -lco UPDATE_PERMISSIONS=ALL -f couchdb couchdb:http://127.0.0.1:5984 world_merc.shp

Then query the document to make sure the geojson is in there:

ogrinfo couchdb:http://127.0.0.1:5984/ -so -al world_merc

You should get:

$ ogrinfo couchdb:http://127.0.0.1:5984/ -so -al world_merc
INFO: Open of `couchdb:http://127.0.0.1:5984/'
      using driver `CouchDB' successful.

Then try rendering with nik2img:

# install first
sudo easy_install nik2img

# then render
nik2img.py couchmap.xml world.png

Thanks

Even is the humble but brilliant fellow who added couch support to OGR virtually overnight.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
