You can get mapnik here: http://mapnik.org/download/. There is also a windows binary available available here: http://mapnik.org/news/2011/11/29/windows-binaries-progress/.

Then simply follow your platform's instalation guide.

Once installed correctly you can import it to Python in the normal way.

  • I don't understand what more you need. If you read the documentation and follow the instructions you should be able to call Mapnik from Python. Isn't that what you want? Commented Jun 19, 2012 at 11:02
  • Its not working. Can you tell me other way out.

    You need to give a more information. What versions of python and Mapnik are you using? What is the error message you are getting. It is very difficult to make any suggestion without an adaquate description of the problem. Commented Jun 21, 2012 at 7:26
