Bug#705324: ITP: alacarte -- tile renderer for OpenStreetMap using Cairo and MapCSS

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andrew Shadura <andrewsh@debian.org>

* Package name    : alacarte
  Version         : 0.2.1
  Upstream Author : Institut für Theoretische Informatik et al.
* URL             : http://github.com/alacarte-maps/alacarte/
* License         : AGPL-3+
  Programming Lang: C++11
  Description     : tile renderer for OpenStreetMap using Cairo and MapCSS

 alaCarte is a tile renderer for OpenStreetMap data written in C++11,
 using Cairo for rendering and Boost-Spirit for MapCSS parsing.
 The rendered tiles are served over HTTP using the Slippy map tilenames
 convention. To compute which data is needed for rendering a tile,
 alaCarte uses a variant of a kd-Tree.
 alaCarte was designed with medium dataset size in mind. On a typical
 machine with at leat 8GB RAM, alaCarte can handle a unfiltered export
 from the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg (Germany).
  * easy to use
  * most MapCSS attributes are implemented
  * no need to filter OSM exports, you have full access to all attributes at runtime
  * stylesheets are updated at runtime (changes are detected automatically)
  * tiles can be rendered in groups ("meta tile") to speed up rendering

P.S. The package is ready and working, but I think to wait a little bit until the
upstream does the next release — I'm packaging from Git currently.
