Anyone who has tried to create great looking maps for a large dataset such as OpenStreetMap knows how daunting of a task that can be. Scribe is the solution to this painstaking task. This presentation will introduce this new way to not only edit, but mostly to manage, mapfiles. No matter how much data you have, how many mapfiles or the complexity of your symbology, it will help you sort out the essential by removing the iterative part of the process. Getting rid of all of this error prone copy-paste as well! Scribe is a python script that allows you to write a configuration file instead of a mapfile. The configuration is similar to Basemaps, but simpler to use and less verbose.

and the ones that begin for a question for you will in the room and is already using loving mass over food the people who is new to master or some people on the business and who easier just to Magnifica feature in the taking of life and so Nocera's great that just under new visceral vasorum break some Rasbora will not sorry is the fastest macron the innings and there is right now on the market Mansaray is easy to instal thanks to windows and that the people doing the bills for next summer is easy to go figure with and Nice human renewable come figures find welcomed don't the move but it this year and renewable
then but now for the moment it is great for the work with his right and the far right for full it's possible to get a really really beautiful results
for from your mouth here is a nice Nocera map but with the poison and the with us by that replicate Google Maps the same map with a great shape is so we can put Yoriko full statistical data while the
Biras nice rosters
example not about it and in this case the also would also ocean the ocean MNRAS but also oceans and those arrested it up for O'Shea cautioned that it but take eras
the and Nice and under which you can see it on the back of the room with the lights lower on the Montreal Island so just to make your freezers appeared more nicely in the back and the all the data information out of it
yes that would be in the does it you want to do all of that it will help you to use drivers cried what it will have to act on that and that the goal of this presentation and if you want more became the wit and the siren at a time where we can meet or a set of about for something so that they are great began to Porical stuffed with big not while you can even use into to get to meet with many of information because there will be and but the thing is that everyone that has been a big undignified as a driver you give you should are at the front of the Kop based when you have that this was worse than the generalised for multiple levels you have to act of Debaser layers of inward 6 4 but that and although operation you have to ask is are added guns using their the worrying also you have to go the pace of the World for a or and so on for example is
that when you do not not while you have to have several tools and windows all around to that they said were your favourite for about whether you will need a rather to see the result of the changes you will also need echoes of open to senior debug all put out a fire of Laura and still windows so you can guess exploratory data even to get to senior data and accurate you'd or or during during a indeed like us in the goal of
described inscribed you is to make your life or easier to make things the 0 2 men aged easier to the not so in this book will talk about making 2 things the 1st thing is that crimes that which is always to trim down work when developing map and then talk about strike you why witches and my seems on the face and body that or and Productivity tools above the my the work and the other with the views the century would grow your skills grid you why scrawny why it is there to make things easier for my offers by my by the over so it's really it we are not trying to reinvent the wheel we are trying to replays when development it's the request or of the word that not finding offers new dating the that we the that at are during the the requirement for further to
discuss index 1st in itself the UK is on the board and the board of the said that the mob while index like it's about following the is not corallite in also for my that you have the storey of the results of its delays on the map by the fact that you have to you have to know the map points in that through the to be efficient with the grades intact it's just 3 at replied that runs and that gives you a real not quite strike is a way to make my point development or lawbreaker by removing and not of the state it makes perfect more manageable and it does up by 1 of the some details about what
strike does Lucia's example and the next sides but right does is it takes your struggle and trades of the players it would create 1 player for the design all that you have to find the result would win the perfectly and then that he would be able to get comments inside the resulting up the prevents and the players class inside the condition and it still based on the map by that so we seek to replace not find just to help people that work with them so the command to run the described as simple as a bike unscribed that he walked out there are also a bunch of options but you get as but they won't just read the bit of the 1st things which is great
inscribed is the scale of the conditions the when you start product you define the skills that your mind with use at and from there on the with NEMO Wharram instead of the moment next of kin were any more so that agreed it would use things like and because the idea of where you just as the scales there now zoom level because you work with the Liberals from their on to match with your way the station that you walking with so you defined as a level that you will work at in each because sauce a that would you was at Egil level at the end 40 work and you with the setbacks so Iro we'd refined the with a fine depending on the level we are at it's Aston does that so no walk based you just defined which is only 1 you want to be used with each party can use either a black or said defined the for a single the other great thing about the novel of the poverty balls began I'll defined by bills by rebels that the party group the of in search and are that are simply value and those very low the again but then inside your strides in tax still no more of the condition of the ball Ziskin action information about the words of edition of your and the of the rules common of a new said that and if you want all your street a river or oceans them in the same collars then you define Akora ones and you just didn't want to know more fun in a place of this single colour statement the grant other
than that that Israel's fully is the Colin blocks if you want but if you already have what sort for a few reiterated when you want to come unpopularity you have to put the past bag light and next to it relies so that the with of buying so now we inscribed with support command line with slashed far and that will put at block of code and go if you want to stay at the Commons in a result that 5 prescribed then you use the double lashed AG command in bills covered with a real will be in the resulting map so you can still notes for a and a greater are begins still leave No to yourself when you try to do what options resulting that 5 when it in Brighton or staging in a staging a roaring so
stride using its 3 its it does of buying we already at of Friday the music and it did so at the twice work price as fast as a real life no scribe the like a set there looking at a map filed for for mass over his great but it could be easier to strike is that is that to make it easier but now it would be even easier if we at at all are to was in the same way are small tricks in a shirt and a solo scraggy are is indeed and finding that her like there was for while fighting the 2 most operate approach that were and in that that in the last or there is the nephew of a as well but each Lafite editor intensity I'll die down because I went out to bat that is aimed for new means those you meet usually Doubleprint contributed to because they are new so scraggy wise it is indeed a modified as well but it's more and that set to were for the or use or as well as we hope it will be long and press period so Object or of described the wine and in the face 1st we have to
Workspace's worse swizzler pride when you drink that were space Ugandan can for your but journey is the mandatory you can put up last work to be done the multiple my point that operate walking also brought by the different players to be the friend scales a single point at the end of the campaign multiple maps then again draped new maps inside a project and is ready strongly it and everyone that the number in order to lower the price of gold who in the room when starting a new body politics problem about from scratch nobody does like us to know what occurred on that so instruct you real we are well a that so you can compete in the UK 1 the few or at as the place for you to write to you get needed to find the right note for all of the project or just the about why you add projects to your that works so when trading in New maplike you always but the and existing What do that search and it will now be available for due to go before of your next the new project the technology editor which is the main block of stodgy why the is are week it later by groups so when he said that looking at all the and is it's got caught up there is a line of marine and when you make a mistake in the price intact you will also out array that the new which line which Americans problematic was caused as an apt and Matt view of this the for a sake of the windows green and the people and the end of the room didn't put yet back and made of the whole education but will we ever be at the and buying spree the leader groups annually are group than the trade that the death or you can with a fine of the Overath of away nearest inside the optician demand that initial 1 of the other great thing is that we not the user so you know about the map the condition and the same way as your layered so it's easy to access and you want to access to modify that the global map definition and you can't hide it when your so it doesn't take a screen side streets but now that was that the basic introduction to describe the way it operates now more advanced tools for near offers 1 of the 1st and most more than 4 thousand wanted that inside
the you why a week added as small where it did your debug all put are displayed so that the 1st the wads dipping everything together in the same in the face so you go about it when the low for a while you did not As soon as you Panamao causing you will get dealt with their an absolute pointed it would be cool to add more Uman renewable auction down the but the you can also get the resulting are fighting over in the UK but that can immediately see the result of the pace that somewhere in the file whatever you get also ex-boss your holds not filed with all the clubs in the top all that you need to download installed on Britain servers the area where I really cool to is the point of and the rest but we uninscribed your you're so when the loving not quite what we know at this is that we are all ways coming back to the same point we have to treat for 10 point of and the as we want to test or a change again to see if it's that the result of good so we added the point of and the rest so you can just sit that we automatically when the right of all and the right extends to show you the result where you want to see them it makes it easy to test several regions when it things now strategy white in the Cloud Friendly white women the face at where station and they became the and the dollar are simply in fund solver that you Sherwood your coffers so it Allos to their offers to work in Group on the same project without getting to the top of so it's rules lot and the for that the maintenance so you can walk a centralised system all together on the same project at the same time and again password-protected walked by side the so you can if you want did access on the Web you Gopperth blessing abroad or to your work Prediction version of the execution the Warren Silesian puzzled without from the White wants and its for everyone because it's in the cloud it also found that you are on the new machine and walk away from their of the room with that but it's a future that is that we found that was cool because when your working went 3 people working in the same bed as especially 0 and and the West and plan and that the set you don't want all of them to installed the data on the Rashid and to work in the Cloud we also
afebrile that where you can download or upload new data on the server so you don't have to assess age or a sleepy your on the server and all them in the right direct area things like that you now have a nice blank India where you can see the uploaded including the your are on the rise in the right directory of the source I've mentioned
Blunden's that because Friday isopod the for August product work is a chorus people using it but also make it even better as a Productivity to so for now we added that plugin which are small components but that the government needed to you are gave up new won't so we added that you just of function like ad but on the other hand we are told you to add components inside the web of the show and you will be able to the black smoke by constrained that winning the servers side of your head and your blighted black Friday wise classification written by and if your familiar with that well be spreading gets the across the room so you can access the codes directly from from the burden doctorate we call that in the future they will be at the New plugins that in the end we are Idiap plans for some of them at a time for its history and we all that other are highly of up a real the dandified the and area where the needs a new tool that anyone the injured with so it
the beginning of the example but in the League at the 1st available within the and the application is the extent but where you have a small but the that again see on the screen and it will 0 you to drag as and ice or and where a rectangular the map in the wake up in the change the extent of your mouth audience instead the right to ride numbers autocuties being dealt with a penalty or a quest like that like we always have done so you can refer to despite being to get than it is to get a good example of a reasonable and it was sure you all to create new plugins if your interest the bloody is that the
party when the pre the 1st 1 we would be the 1st match of the day and at night the stuff refined quote Bookara that you just take or a few and inquiry will add a new where the post where in your face and you will be able to click to just indentify which car is going away then I'd would like to add and destined for the region but and were you can the finding your Matjash information weapons on your sought and lunch and 1 in 4 identity to add every tools for you was grin in the slaying Applications integrated which each other so when you trading 5 will be able to just take and she weapons and Patrick Gettinger when the start to generate all that prices for all the words at all the levels on the source some other of body that we talk about the game than the ratio of debt to get when you save your mapping goals from clinic in negative rebels 3 so can and salt written control that is relations with the publishing financing the produce review Madrid adult all put away his like so the year study the foreign news nations and time of the match by the robbers the sundial some dips anthrax basics was brought why you get out of the 1st things that you can now think of your maps as those instead of services in the world then become can now become and that in itself because you will be able to easy to find the real collar spacing of all your features N this will allow you to go and see the real map with cockerel couple for or whether designer ideas instead with from the application of a string my about are days and the and I'd have to to make up their minds to things like that so it makes things easier and more beautiful for the day and he was are as well of cost models are investing in the water so use them a scrawny why laws will tell you where year's said that Sir are so if it would be easy for you to the fact that the way you and an error and but and the are a friend was so cover minute but
