I have a python file which iterates over the features of a shapefile and renders a simple image by zooming to the bounding box of each feature. What I need is OpenstreetMap as a basemap. I have OpenStreetMap successfully loaded in a postis database. I can produce an OpenStreetMap with the mapnik example, but I have no idea how to call the osm file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
