Still some rough edges left

There are still a few small things not working well on the new machine yet, as due to the failure of the old machine ahead of time.

Problems that I’m aware of right now:

  • WayMarkedTrails overlays were missing most track symbols, and on the way regenerating them I accidentially deleted an important data file. So right now a full re-import of the routes database is ongoing, hopefully finished in a few hours
  • Selecting a geographic area in the web frontend is somewhat broken, I hope to figure out what went wrong with the Javascript code there soon …
    Rendering by city name is not affected.

Server outage

Unfortunately a bunch of things have gone wrong last weekend, beginning with a failed attempt to renew the LetsEncrypt certificates.

I had already started to set up a new, faster machine anyway, but getting that ready to fully replace the old one didn’t work out that well either yet.

Secondary services, like this blog, are working now, but the web frontend to the MapOSMatic instance is still playing tricks on me, with each page request taking almost exactly 1 minute 52 seconds.

Hopefully I’ll be able to get things running again by tomorrow before leaving for FOSDEM.

PS: there was no data loss, the rendered results for all map requets filed since christmas are still available and can be retrieved if you are patiend enough.

Surveillance overlay updates

I’ve finally shown the surveillance overlay some love again, the render style should now be up to date with the original Surveillance under Surveillance online map style.


Changes include:

  • correctly calculate camera viewing ranges independent of zoom level
  • support for new camera symbols for fixed and panning cameras
  • some code cleanups
