Lennard, That is correct, also because *you* have to tell mapnik *where* your style comes in the whole rendering order, by putting your layer-xxx; at the correct spot. now I see how it works. thank you for the clarification. Akos ___ dev mailing

Lennard, What does happen when you run generate_xml.py is that three files are created (or updated) in the inc directory. They are: datasource-settings.xml.inc, fontset-settings.xml.inc, settings.xml.inc thanks for the info - now I see that. Some guides still give a syntax like:

Lennard, They are dynamically included, by putting the relevant layer-xxx; references at the right spot in osm.xml. The ordering of Layer elements in the stylesheet determines the order in which mapnik renders. what do you mean by 'stylesheet' in this context? So water, for instance, is

Hi, Maybe I'm misunderstanding the generic purpose of the generate_xml.py file from the mapnik rendering toolset, but for me, it does not seem to touch my osm.xml file in any way. when I execute generate_xml.py with appropriate database setttings, osm.xml is not changed in any way. if I remove

Dear Akos, I think you have misunderstood the purpose of generate_xml.py generate_xml.py as far as I understand is to prepare the osm dataset (by default osm.xml) ready for rendering. It fetches the style sheets, symbol information etc and modifies the dataset to create the new osm.xml The

Dear Akos I did read the README file, but this seems to be a catch-22 here. if it uses osm.xml itself to generate osm.xml - how do you initially create the first osm.xml, from the style sheets / templates? The osm.xml file is a bit confusing in this scenario. You can see that the osm.xml
