A simple utility for rendering points on a map.
pointnik --point=-110,45 config.xml map.png
This renders a point at 110° West, 45° North. The
config.xml file is a
Mapnik configuration file
that defines the data sources and styles used. The configuration file is
expected to have a style named "point" to be used for rendering points.
See the examples directory for more.
Install Node if you haven't already.
npm install --global pointnik
This should make the
pointnik utility available on your path.
