  Description     : Python interface to the mapnik library

Mapnik is an OpenSource C++ 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

This package contains the bindings for Python. It used to be built from
the mapnik source, but has been split off into its own project since
mapnik 3.0.0.

The package will be maintained within the Debian GIS team.
