A simple utility for rendering points on a map.

For example

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.
