I would start with TileMill, some excellent open source software. This will allow you to design maps, pulling data from shape files, postgis, etc, and render then via Mapnik to various different formats. TillMill is used by the OSM project for rendering their tiles. TillMill has a form of CSS for designing maps, called CartoCSS, and this is used to ...

Depending on how confident you are with technical setups, rather than running local GeoServers, you could use something like TileMill to generate MBTiles files of all your images, or just the images using Invar. This can then be show by simple python code like TileStache. This would be a much lighter weight setup.

For the satellite tiles, you could render them yourself using Mapnik. Landsat and NAIP are two sources of free satellite raster data. edit: I've also just come across a growing dataset (also free) of High Resolution Orthoimagery, which I've never used, but is much higher detail than the other two sources.

Your approach looks ok to me. On my local system, I skipped the TileCache part. Mapnik fills the folders in the way Openlayers reads them from disk using file:///... I don't know if leaflet can do it the same way. For the satellite tiles: You have no chance to get them legally. Google and bing do not like storing their tiles locally. If you have ...

I usually do this using QGIS. I load the kml layer, save as shapefile and add the columns that are necessary for rendering. Then I open a connection to my postgis database, delete everything inside the current view, and copy-and-paste the kml data into the postgis layer. I have created a separate bboxdb inside postgis for such cases, so my original osm ...

It's a bit high time I answered, but here goes: Since the use of Wax is deprecated as you mentioned, here are some Mapbox examples to get you started. Bear in mind that the Leaflet API is embedded into Mapbox.js and can be used hand in hand with Mapbox code. Using http://localhost:8000/{z}/{x}/{y}.png means to store the tiles in your own folder. This is ...

I fix the same issue on CentOS machine by installing proj-epsg package.

Just edit the renderd.conf and add a section for your second style (make sure the "URI" entry points to a different path than that of your default style). For example, my renderd.conf contains the sections [default] XML=/etc/mapnik-osm-carto-data/osm.xml URI=/osm/ DESCRIPTION=This is the standard osm mapnik style HOST=host.my CORS=* MINZOOM=0 MAXZOOM=20 ...

Thanks for the solution. I was thinking of manipulating OSM.XML file to change the projection information and get a reprojected map on-the-fly. For example, I followed this tutorial but could not get the result. Just wondering if you have any experience in this regard. UPDATE: To have a map with a custom projection (rather than OSM default EPSG:3857), you ...
