I'm using Maperitive to render OSM map data of Mexico City as SVG files, destination Illustrator and then print (on paper, in a book).
At different zoom levels, the resulting maps have different levels of text. At zoom=16 it looks like I get everything down to the last little street name, at 13, far fewer labels.
Since we want to print city maps with just the major categories - like names of suburbs - does anyone know what labels are included with the different zoom levels? If I knew that, I could do the maps without the thousands of street names that would be too tiny to read in print. OSM has something on it:
...but not much.
Once I've worked it out, I want to do other maps of other cities, hoping that the same rules apply in all of them.
