FME's MapnikRasterizer Makes
Happy Cartographers
Yes, we could make nice rasters before…
However, we had to use A LOT of transformers:

  3. 3. MapnikRasterizer – a Game Changer A better map with less transformers
  4. 4. A few details about MapnikRasterizer  Based on Mapnik, open source mapping toolkit  No need to know Python, C++, CSS, or even XML!  Set styles with “Symbolizers”  Functionality includes:  multiple layers per feature  raster patterns  labelling engine  compositing operation  The quality of output rasters is better than ever before (sub-pixel anti-aliasing)
  5. 5. MapnikRasterizer GUI  Dynamic input ports  10 Symbolizers  Multiple layers and symbolizers per feature type  Different settings for each symbolizer
  6. 6. Simple Example  A single feature can be stylized with multiple symbolizers: Source 2 Symbolizers 5 Symbolizers
  7. 7. Vancouver Streets Example  Compound line styles  External style definitions  Mapnik Labelling engine
  8. 8. 2.5D with Building Symbolizers  Pseudo 3D effect  Not only buildings: any polygons and even stroked texts look great, too!
  9. 9. Comp-op (Compositing operations)  Define how layers interact  Serve for masking or blending  Very cool functionality to play with 
