I am trying to install mapnik and generate tiles for a given country using this tutorial


But what a pity thing. Despite I have downloaded all boundary files and unpacked it , but a strange error is disturbing me to do it .

root@ks356390:/home/bin/mapnik# sudo ./generate_image.py Traceback
(most recent call last):   File "./generate_image.py", line 42, in
    mapnik.load_map(m,mapfile) RuntimeError:
/home/bin/mapnik/world_boundaries/10m_populated_places does not exist
(encountered during parsing of layer 'nepopulated')

but see ...

I tried to make generate_image with sudo also... Any idea why mapnik is making this in ubuntu??????? It seems it doesn't see 10M nepopulated , despite the folder and files exist

You seem to have a directory or a file called 10m_populated_places. This is not right. What you need would look like this:

it seems inside the archive files start with ne_ like ne_10m_....


Maybe this is the problem. I will try now to rename them all...and will vote for you :)))

hi, I also experienced a Runtime Error, but the problem is like this:

dewi@dewi-laptop:/src/bin/planet/mapnik-stylesheets$ ./generate_image.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "./generate_image.py", line 42, in <module> mapnik.load_map(m,mapfile) RuntimeError: This map uses features only present in Mapnik version 0.7.1 and newer (in node Map)
