C++/Python toolkit for developing GIS applications (doc)
Mapnik is an OpenSource C++/Python toolkit for developing GIS (Geographic Information Systems) applications. At the core is a C++ shared library providing algorithms/patterns for spatial data access and visualization.
Essentially a collection of geographic objects (map, layer, datasource, feature, geometry), the library doesn't rely on "windowing systems" and is intended to work in multi-threaded environments
High-level Python bindings (boost.python) facilitate rapid application development, targeting zope3, django, etc.
This package contains developer documentation.
