Mapweaver has its roots in mapgen.pl, osmdiff.pl and osmrender.pl. The basic goals are:
- Fast and easy map generation, different output formats
- Fast extraction of needed data out of *.osm files (place=*)
- Easy style file handling
- Street and place directories
- Keep it simple (easy invocation with only 2 mandatory parameters)
- Keep it powerful (by using more parameters)
The projection method used is Mercator, ellipsoid is WGS84.
