Putting the Carto into OpenStreetMap Cartography

A session at State of the Map 2013

Saturday 7th September, 2013

2:40pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

Andy Allan
Earlier this year, Andy embarked on a rewrite of the OpenStreetMap standard Mapnik stylesheets, porting them to the CartoCSS styling language. This opens the door for developing the styles using TileMill, as well as making them easy to customize for other projects. Andy will discuss some of the background behind the rewrite, tips picked up, tricks that were developed, and advice on the common pitfalls when styling OSM data in TileMill. Andy will also explain how to wrangle the stylesheets to suit your own projects and how to help further improve your cartography.**{Update of SOTM-US presentation}**
