I am fairly new to OSM and just try to generate tiles for osmand without using the OSM servers.
All goes well so far, but I have hit a dead end with a render error.
the highway names (or numbers, or ref, at they seem to be called in osm) are aligned to the highway, but the rectangles for them are not. If I edit osm.xml to “not rotate” the names, then they are still not quite correct.
Please see the image below:
Mapnik was setup using the latest svn or git, as was the osm.xml. Generate_xml produces the same effect.
The osm2pgsql from the Ubuntu latest ppa was used, the data comes from Geofabrik.
What did I wrong?
