  Description     : Mapnik to image export

Nik4 is a mapnik-to-image exporting script. It requires only mapnik-python

Nik4 takes great care to preserve values you feed it. If you say you
need a 800×600 image, it won't take a pixel less or more. It won't
shrink a bounding box or distort lines when specifying so called "scale
factor". When you need a 300 dpi image, you tell it --ppi 300 and can be
sure you will get what you intended.

Also it can use real-world units, that is, millimeters (and prefers to).
Specify dimensions for printing, choose bounding box and ppi scale — and
the result won't disappoint. Options are intuitive and plenty, and you
will be amazed how much tasks became simpler with Nik4.
