#607 closed defect (worksforme)

mapnik layer unable to render Chinese

Reported by: dkt Owned by: jburgess777@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Mapnik appears to be using a single font for rendering that doesn't have Chinese characters, as such, Chinese text is currently rendered as boxes... see as an example, the three cities shown are Nanjing 南京 (north west), Shanghai 上海 (east) & Hangzhou 杭州 (south west)...
