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
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 miscellaneous utilities distributed with mapnik:
shapeindex: program to creates file system based index for ESRI shape-files

mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Standards-Version 3.9.5
* Set priority of python-mapnik2, libmapnik2-dev to oldlibs/extra.
* Add 1002 upstream patch to reduce memory usage during compilation
* Disable debugging symbols to save memory during compilation.
This and the previous change should be enough to close: #742149.
* Build multiple python versions using scons properly, so that scons
doesn't build everything twice.
* Copyright:
+ use Files-Excluded, now repackaging is done by uscan
+ add section for debian/rules technique taken from fife package
* Watch github directly, no need for githubredir.
