1German Map Style for Mapnik
2---------------------------
3
4This style closely follows the "original" Mapnik style
5(svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/rendering/mapnik). All
6instructions and helper programs from that directory apply
7equally to here, and changes made to that style could, and
8often should, be patched in here as well.
9
10This style has originally been developed by Beate Braun for her
11Bachelor Thesis at HFT Stuttgart, with support from Geofabrik
12and is now maintained by the openstreetmap community.
13
14The style is made freely available here for anyone to use, subject
15to any constraints possibly inherited from the original Mapnik style.
16
17This style is in use at http://www.openstreetmap.de/.

19See http://www.openstreetmap.de/germanstyle.html for more.

21There is a developer and maintainer mailinglist at
22mapnik-de@lists.openstreetmap.de

24To deploy this style use the supplied default.style file for
25osm2pgsql and import data using the hstore extension of
26PostgreSQL (--hstore --hstore-match-only switches of osm2pgsql).
27
28To keep the database compatible to the "original" Mapnik style we
29now use views instead of tables. SQL scripts to set up these views
30are supplied in the views directory.
