Generating missing tangogps tiles
TangoGPS is nice, but it wants to download tiles.
However, I already have a working mapnik
setup, so why bother the OpenStreetMap
servers with tile requests?
- Set up a mapnik environment like I explained with
gpsdrive, but use the
-m switch to
svn co http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/rendering/mapnik/
- Edit set-mapnik-env to configure it. Make sure that
Maps/OSM as used by TangoGPS.
./set-mapnik-env ./customize-mapnik-map > osm.xml
generate_tiles.py to customise the area that you want to generate.
Make sure that when setting
bbox the first latitude is smaller than the
second latitude, and the same for longitude.
./set-mapnik-env ./generate_tiles.py and watch it paint your tiles.
Note that if a tile has already been downloaded, it will not download it
