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

Hello everybody,

I downloaded a file, put it in my Pgsql Database.

So far so good.

Now i want the Tiles.

I want to use Mapnik for Windows (VErsion 2.0.1 rc0)

The Demo works (rundemo.py), Python (2.7) is also installed.

Now: How can i Create Tiles with Mapnik in Windows?

There is a bin Directory:

pgsql2sqlite shapeindex

I already Created a "osm.sqlite" with pgsql2sqlite

Shapeindex wants a *.shp file.

What can / Should i do? I want the Tiles :(

Please Help me.

Best regards

There is a detailed description on TopoMapCreator about How to render OSM data with TileMill on Windows.

Use TileMill - it's new Mapnik, compiled for Windows, with a nice GUI.

/disclosure, wrote a lot of it.

By visiting the OSM wiki and entering "mapnik windows" in the text search box there, I found two interesting links:
