Custom scripts for OpenStreetmap

Here is an overview of the custom shell / Perl / Python scripts I have used to do my own processing of OpenStreetmap data. While they are usable for their purpose, to get the most out of them, you should view them as examples to understand and modify.

The following rendering scripts require a live PostgreSQL / PostGIS database with OpenStreetmap data.

Rendering standard OpenStreetmap tiles

These also require renderd from the mod_tile package to be running.

Dealing with metatiles

(These don't need the PostgreSQL / PostGIS database but process rendered metatiles.)

Rendering larger map regions
