Build a global, fast maps/tile hosting "platform".

Already working on this like mad and with a little bit of luck, I'll have a first version ready within a week.

Also learning Rust, becoming even better at/with Linux....

    Is this to replace open street map or is this meant to be more generic than that? If you need infrastructure or testing coverage let me know. That’s not a project I would do but I would help out with infrastructure stuff

    @FrodoSwaggins Not to replace, just to not be dependent on openstreetmap or commercial services :)

    What do you mean with coverage exactly?

    @linuxxx I think I would have fun just writing test cases and managing infrastructure for something like that. That’s not usually how I feel but for this project that’s a contribution that makes sense for me

    @FrodoSwaggins Ah fair enough! What kind of infrastructure could you offer/contribute?

    (I'll send you an email in the morning about this)

    We are planning that (and more) too. Check out https://www.mapdiscover.org/ . Currently in the beginning phase. We are trying to get a usable alternative to GMaps with OSM and OpenData as underlying data.

    @hypervtechnics I think I'm trying to build something different (solely the hosted tiles and rendering the data) but it looks cool!

    @linuxxx Maybe we can exchange some knowledge at some later time?

    @hypervtechnics Sure! Always feel free to email me (linuxxx@tuta.io), I don't have many other channels of communication due to privacy reasons :)
