I have followed RenderingOsmDataUbuntu 10.10 and set up Google styled web map using mapserver. The osm-google.map seems to be not using table osm_new_buildings. Also no POI (Point of interest) data is seems to be imported from the OSM file. How can I add both?
The "google" style does not render buildings by default, you can add it by editing generate_style.py and setting display_buildings to 1 in the google variable (https://github.com/mapserver/basemaps/blob/master/generate_style.py#L1122).
For pois, there are none added by default aside from place names, you'll have to add them yourself to the mapfiles (adding a layer in places.map very similar to the "places" layer is the way to go).
