As an alternative to GPX uploads it is now also possible to uploaed saved Umap maps and render the contents as an overlay.
After hopefully having sorted out all problems caused by the rusher migration to a new, faster server I’ve now finally figured out how to improve the user interface for GPX uploads.
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:
Rendering by city name is not affected.
Finally, all services seem to be back in working shape again on the new server.
I don’t really know what went wrong in the first place, or what action actually fixed it, and for now I don’t care and just think about better monitoring instead.
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.
There haven’t been any visible changes since FrOScon, so I want to give a quick update on things I’m currently planing or actually working on.
My main focus right now is on improving the GPX track overlay feature,
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.
FrOSCon is coming up in three weeks from now, and the program is now online.
We’re going to have a full OSGeo & OSM track this year in our own dev room, and I’m going to have three different sessions there:
