this is reaction for threads about sqlite and Mapnik. I promissed that I
post something about my research. So here it is.
There is SVN with sources and compiled versions of tools (windows only
at this time). At first I must say, that this is not replacement for
current support of Sqlite in Mapnik. I did this work half year ago, so
thats why there is only Mapnik 0.5.1.
It is very simple and uncomplete, but it works fine. If there will be
some feedback, I will continue to finish it. Next development will be
completely different to postgress schema, because there will be high
performance speedups if I change rendering way.
At final state it should be just two programs. Convert/update tool and
Web server with integrated mapnik and db server. So user just get his
part of OSM, run convert and run server with converted data. I thing
that there will be benefits for beginers, that is good artists (making
icons and styles), but not advanced users (installing DBs and so on...).
