Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have a Ubuntu 11.10 VM running the Ubuntu Tile Server as described on the wiki. I've imported the Geofabrik Oxfordshire extract and the usual OSM data is rendering well. I cannot, however, get any contour lines to display.

I have followed the wiki'd instructions covering the PostGIS Approach, using the import script provided to add the following files to my database:

These files, I imagined, would correspond my existing OSM data.

To /etc/mapnik-osm-data/osm.xml I have added the line:


To /etc/mapnik-osm-data/inc/layers.xml.inc I have added the line:

!ENTITY layer-contours SYSTEM "layer-contours.xml.inc

(note, I've removed some tags as the formatting was making my line disappear. This line is formatted the same as the others)

The file /etc/mapnik-osm-data/inc/layer-contours.xml.inc is as pasted here

I restarted renderd and got the same permissions error as described here. Since granting the gis user select on geometry_columns the error has been removed, but I still cannot see any contours.

I have connected to the database remotely to verify that there is data in the contours table.

I've not done anything with extents here - are they required? Anything else I'm missing?

Help greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Joseph
