Mapnick is an opensource mapping framework that generates great maps, you can read more here. This is intended to be an high-level discussion about using mapnick as a WMS server, setting it up, what it does, how it can be extentended. We'll talk about integrating Drupal with mapnik using lightweight tools to create beautiful maps.


We'll talk about:

  • What mapnik does.
  • How to get it running.
  • Interfacing with Drupal.
  • Alterative ways to handle location data in Drupal.
