osm2city can now be used to create complete tiles. It simplifies the usage of the osm2city.py toolchain. Currently it is tested for windows, but is planned to be portable.

Adapt params.ini

Since the next step distributes the params.ini to several subdirectories it is advisable to edit the template params.ini


Call build_tiles.py

python batch_processing/build_tiles.py -t w003n60 -f params_kp.ini -o params.ini

This step copies the params_kp.ini and adds the tilename as a PREFIX and outputs to params.ini. You can use option "-p" on linux and mac in order to generate scripts with parallel processing support and specify the max number of parallel processes when calling the generated scripts.

#-- Scenery folder (typically a geographic name or the ICAO code of the airport
PREFIX = w010n50/w006n55
