tutorial: how to print a map from OSM-data

we have succeeded in turning OSM-data into a printed Map of Copenhagen for Young Travellers, and wrote a tutorial on how we did that.

all info here:


To change the features of a rendered map, one needs to edit the …features file. This is an XML-file, that needs to be edited with a text editor. Does anyone know of a WYSIWYG-editor that could handle the trick, or, possibly, an editor with tickboxes to show/hide layers?

Please don’t cross-post your question around in the forum, it is considered as SPAM by many forum users. Thanks.

Well it would be pretty easy to use the mapnik style editor + an app that creates a xml file. You just need to create the structure for it, there are so many features that it’s kind of hard to do… Even though it would be a good thing to do.
