I would like to use mapnik in order to create tiles of a shapefile.
I have downloaded the mapnik repository as described here and read how the Open Street Map engine works, but is too much for what I need.
I would like to use the OSM tiling convention, and so to use the generate_tiles.py script, but limited to my shapefile.
Do you have any hints in doing that? Or you think it is a better idea to write scripts by myself, like the working following one?
