OwnTracks – keep track of your own location
12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Apr 2022
As far as I know, owntracks doesn't actually store location history, it only defines a protocol for exchanging current location info between programs. If you're using their "official" recording server, writing a script to import history looks super easy .
Open-source, self-hosted location tracking with OwnTracks and Grafana
2 projects | dev.to | 25 Jun 2021
After setting up the client side, a server-side component to receive the OwnTracks app's requests is still missing. OwnTracks ships with its Recorder, which is a small and simple web application written in C. However, I did not like it a lot, as it does not look particularly beautiful and is very limited regarding its functionality. I rather wanted to visualize my data in Grafana. But to get it there, it first needs to be persisted to a database.
What are some alternatives?
Traccar - Traccar GPS Tracking System
Orion - Robust web visualization tool for OwnTracks location data
Openstreetmap - The Rails application that powers OpenStreetMap
Geoadmin - map.geo.admin.ch source code
Graphhopper - Open source routing engine for OpenStreetMap. Use it as Java library or standalone web server.
uMap - uMap lets you create maps with OpenStreetMap layers in a minute and embed them in your site.
web-mapviewer - The viewer application for maps and geodata
