Mapnik is an open source cartographic rasterizer with the ability to generate beautiful raster imagery. Add a point-and-click integration with FME for a powerful new combination. You'll find out how to create mind-blowing mashups in Mapnik with FME's ability to integrate data from 325+ sources. You'll also see how to optimize data before it reaches Mapnik -- including the ability to perform a wide range of geometry transformations. And with the new MapnikRasterizer transformer, all of this is done with scalable and automated workflows at your fingertips - no Python, XML or CSS needed.
