Making PostgreSQL, PostGIS And A Mac Play Nicely Together
Most things in life are a journey and the destination of this particular journey was to try and create a custom map style that represented the unique features and challenges of Tandale.
Which meant I needed to download and install TileMill, an interactive map design tool.
Which meant I needed to learn Carto, the CSS-like language for map styling.
Which meant I looked for a template project so I didn't have to start from scratch.
Which meant I found OSM Bright.
Which meant I needed to start small and find a map extract of Tanzania to work with.
Which meant I needed to install and configure PostgreSQL and PostGIS on my Mac.
Which brings me to the starting point of the journey and the reason for this post in the first place.
