Setting up tiles@home

Hi Ollie! Me vikas. Me trying to setup a TAH server and having some tough problems cause me having no clue about python. In case you can, please assist me. Thanks a lot. thevikas 04:06, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi Vikas,
I've actually been playing with Mapnik a lot recently, and I think that the OSM-Mapnik way of creating tiles is much easier than TAH - you don't need to set up a Django server, which is very fiddly. Also, the process is better documented and, I think, has a larger community behind it. Once you have Mapnik up and running, then there's a set of OSM-specific files which drive Mapnik to produce the correct tiles. These are good as a base, e.g. for editing the stylesheet XML.
Python's straightforward once you know the basics, it's much preferable to perl!

Milton Keynes Cake Updated

Hi Ollie. I fiddled with your cake last night MK Mapping Party#Area Cake. It's showing the newly mapped areas on there now. I had to do some weird resizing in photoshop though, so the place labels look slightly less clear now.

Oh yeah, and I've booked train tickets for me and my girlfriend. Weather's looking a bit pants, but there's no going back now!
