I've imported a OSM database using Nominatim's setup.php. Is it possible to use some software to render the tiles using that database, or do I have to re-import in a different database for Mapnik and similar?


No, it's not possible to recycle the database, as both tools do very different tasks and therefore they create very specific datastructures to run nice and smooth.

Please import another time your DB dump for mapnik, as explained here: www.switch2osm.org

  • If you use different database names, you can use mapnik and nominatim at the same time. But you still have to import the data twice.
