Fourth time lucky! I keep breaking the 40K limit on postings.
Maperitive will do this right now, even though it's only 10%
complete, if that!
It has the ability to show Mapnik and Osmarender backgrounds and it
will also export them at any zoom level and any width (within
reason). I have a map of York, UK, rendered at Zoom 18 and covers
some 9 sq miles or so. At 30MB I won't post it!
The attached shows (at significantly reduced quality! I've had to compress it a lot) the florist
John's interested in. It's a Mapnik background with a single
Maperitive rule to render Florists. Does the job!
