I'd like to create a map tile server based on the entire OSM planet database for a project I'm working on. I've worked with a couple of guides to try getting something up and running, but haven't found too many comprehensive resources that walk through this process from start to finish.
My requirements so far:
- Linux-based (I'd prefer 10.04, but am open to anything)
- Tile rendering using Mapnik
- The ability to customize the cartography and symbolization to my needs (Quantumnik or Cascadenik seem like good tools for this)
I'd really like to have good custom basemap cartography for some internal apps we're building and I figured this would be a good place to start. Anyone know of any good guides / resources to building this out? I'd prefer step-by-step explanatory stuff, as opposed to just the documentation for each of the components...
