MoNav is build very modular, all it takes to import another kind of
data set is for you to write a new importer plugin. The importer
plugin generates a normalized representation of the data set making
all other plugin types independent of the input format.

Nevertheless, the current rendering plugins rely either on Mapnik or
the OpenStreetMap tile server. To visualize your own data format you
would either have to write your own Mapnik stylesheet or wait until a
vector rendering plugin is available.

If you can give me some good reasons to support specific input formats
I will consider implementing an input plugin for them.
