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 the Python bindings.

    2014-04-06 - Jérémy Lal <> 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 using BOOST_SPIRIT_NO_PREDEFINED_TERMINALS (#742149). * 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.

    2013-12-11 - Francesco Paolo Lovergine <> mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-6) unstable; urgency=medium * Team upload. * Changed libgdal1-dev in libgdal-dev. * Priority set to optional for all packages.

    2013-10-12 - Jérémy Lal <> mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-5) unstable; urgency=low * Set gcc optimization flag to -O2 instead of -O3. * Add 2001 patch to remove gcc -ftemplate-depth-300 flag.

    2013-10-03 - Jérémy Lal <> mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-4) unstable; urgency=low * Disable completely parallel builds. It might be responsible for memory exhaustion on s390, mipsel, mips.

    2013-10-02 - Jérémy Lal <> mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-3) unstable; urgency=low * Honour DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS parallel, defaults to 1.

    2013-09-08 - Jérémy Lal <> mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-2) unstable; urgency=low * Build documentation in -indep target. (Closes: #721579)

    2013-08-27 - Jérémy Lal <> mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-1) unstable; urgency=low [ Andrew Harvey ] * Change debian/rules to use top level font directory (Closes: #665798) [ David Paleino ] * New upstream version 2.1 - fixed compatibility with PostGIS 2.0 (AsBinary() → ST_AsBinary()) (Closes: #699079) * Switch debian/watch to github tags * debian/patches/: - 02-fix_FTBFS_binutils-gold.patch refreshed - 03-fix_ImportError_mips.patc, 03-fix_big-endian.patch and 04-port_to_new_boost.patch removed * Python bindings testsuite temporarily disabled * Adapt debian/rules get-orig-source target to new upstream layout * Build-Depends on libpng-dev instead of libpng12-dev (Closes: #662425) * Bump debhelper compatibility to 9 * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4, no changes needed [ Jérémy Lal ] * New upstream version 2.2 * control: + Transition libmapnik2 to libmapnik (#674587) + Transition python-mapnik2 to python-mapnik + Canonicalize Vcs fields * copyright: + entire tarball review + switch to copyright 1.0 format + DFSG-exclude tests/data/fonts/XB\ Zar.ttf (missing license) + conveniently exclude scons, fonts, and some test files for the sake of copyright simplification. * rules: + update input plugins list, remove geos, kismet and add csv, geojson, python. + disable building demo + remove unneeded workarounds in some targets + call epydoc directly instead of fiddling with build script + pass hardening build flags to mapnik SConstruct, thanks to YunQiang Su. * patch: 1001 patch to link mapnik lib to dl.

    2011-10-25 - David Paleino <> mapnik (2.0.0+ds1-3) unstable; urgency=low * Fix wrong linkage against boost_python-py2*

    2011-10-08 - David Paleino <> mapnik (2.0.0+ds1-2) unstable; urgency=low * 03-fix_big-endian.patch added: the variable for big-endian architectures was wrongly named (Closes: #644704)

    2011-10-05 - David Paleino <> mapnik (2.0.0+ds1-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream version * Debhelper compatibility bumped to 8 * New input plugins compiled: geos, rasterlite * Package switch from pysupport to dh_python2 * Package renamed from libmapnik0.7 to libmapnik2-2.0 * Purge debian/copyright from non-(anymore)-existing files
