Hi everyone!

I just found this new open source Web map design tool released on Feb. 16 :



*"TileMill is a tool for cartographers to quickly and easily design maps for
the web using custom data. It is built on the powerful open-source map
rendering library Mapnik - the same software OpenStreetMap and MapQuest use
to make some of their maps. TileMill is not intended to be a general-purpose
cartography tool, but rather focuses on streamlining and simplifying a
narrow set of use cases."*
And how government agencies can use it :


I'm not a real GIS guy but it seems pretty interesting!

Have a great day!
