Howto use TileMill
Notes on publishing interactive maps:
- Given a TileMill project (styling configuration) you can
- An ArcGIS project (MXD) can be converted to a TileMill project, including all symbols, renderers, and labels, using the Arc2Earch Sync Extension/Plugin .
CartoCSS is a styling language used by TileMill and CartoDB Online.
Notes on using CartoCSS:
- Always specify zoom levels as either >= or < . Don't use = or =< or >
- Two space indents. No tabs.
- space after : but no before
- If there is a &minscale_zoom18;, ignore it. These really mess up any attempts to run the style at z19 Dashes, not underscores, in layer names
- Avoid restating defaults, e.g. don't add point-allow-overlap = false
