The styling inside QGIS is not part of the geotif. It will not be written into the geotif (only in the .qgis project file), and hence tilemill does not know of it. You can use the Qtiles plugin to create tiles directly from QGIS. You may need to enable for experimental plugins to see it in the plugin list. You should set the project CRS to EPSG:3857 ...
The purpose of a tile server is to deliver tiles (raster images). If you want to geocode then use/install a geocoder, for example Nominatim. If you want to access raw data then use/install a service offering raw data, for example Overpass API.
The problem you ran into has nothing to do with carto, it's an issue with your shell command, when you run sudo carto project.mml > OSMBright.xml carto runs as root, but the file write happens as your normal permission level, to do what your looking for you can sudo sh -c "carto project.mml > OSMBright.xml"
I resolved the error by following these steps: Step 1- Create a new file OSMBright.xml in the same folder. Step 2- Type 'ls -l' and see the read and write permission of OSMBright.xml file. Step 3- sudo Chmod 777 OSMBright.xml and it will change the read/write permission of the file. Step 4 - Now do sudo carto project.mml > OSMBright.xml and output ...
Have a look ath these instructions from a mapbox article: osm-bright-ubuntu-quickstart There is a section with hints for setting right permissions for database access. Maybe the issue is hidden there?
Generally speaking, yes, Tilemill does not really support static maps, and its native resolution is web resolution – as you have noticed. The basic workaround is: print more pixels (which makes everything smaller) increase the map Scale Factor (which makes everything bigger) I find you have to experiment a bit, but the process is basically: Export ...
you should give maperitive a try. Its free software for windows (but closed code). with a very friendly and helpful community - and a reasonable good documentation of the software: maperitve homepage with download: http://maperitive.net/ two minutes intro to maperitve: http://maperitive.net/docs/TwoMinutesIntro.html maperitve users group: ...
