Map rendering

Hi yall- can anyone point me to a resource where I can learn how to render maps with custom parameters. My goal is to learn how to produce a map of the city with the neighborhood polygons highlighted. Sort of a map of identified neighborhoods. Thanks!

it depends a lot on what other data you want.

if it’s only your data, then a simple MapnikXML should work, or really any other renderer with a querying and styling language.

If you want to f.i. have the same data as OSM’s standard tiles or any other project, just clone their project and modify the stile. For instance, for the osm style, clone and modify style/admin.mss accordingly. Neighborhoud admin level would depend on your country; check
