    Docker file for a minimal effort OpenStreetMap tile server

    I don't need to serve the whole country, but it's nice to have a little more than just Missouri, so I was pleased to find Protomaps. There are several other extract repositories, but this was the only one I found that let me define and export a custom region. For the actual generation and rendering of the tiles, it seemed easiest to use this existing docker project.

  • Openstreetmap

    The Rails application that powers OpenStreetMap

    It didn't take long to discover OpenLayers, and after some experimentation I was surprised to find that their heatmap implementation is objectively better than Google's. But while the OpenStreetMap data is provided for free, their tile servers are not, so I also needed a way to serve my own tiles.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • OpenLayers3

    OpenLayers
