Turns out the hosting offer I got on the OSGeo mailing list isn't
going to work out. The non-profit was looking for funding for the
hosting service, which I don't have, and we'd also have to fit into
their existing structure/system.
So I got us started on the little web space that I "rent" for my
personal web-site. I figure we can start here, and then move when we
get too big or find a good sponsor.
I'll work on a simple front page and cell index that will be placed here:
You can view the root of the temporary OSMPD data repository here:
I made folders for my cell in Stockton, California here:
If you are a OSM PD enthusiast and would like to start storing your
own data on our repository let me know the approximate loingitude and
latitude of the area you are working on. I'll create the needed cell
folders for you. I've got a limit on my web server space, so
definitely let me know if you think you'll be collecting tons of data,
especially video and photos. I think we should keep contributors
limited to one cell for now. After we are sure this thing is going to
work for a few weeks I can let people have more than one cell folder.
If you want a cell folder in the repository you can e-mail me off the
list at sunburned dot surveyor at gmail dot com. I'll send you a
response e-mail requesting you confirm that all content in the folder
will be released into the public domain using the wikipedia style
Someone on the OSGeo mailing list suggested we might use Amazon S3 for
out data repository. The price isn't too bad. We can start out with
100 GB for $15 a month. Does anyone have experience with this
service?. Does anyone work for a company or ogranization that would
pony up a year's worth of S3 fees? Does anyone know a local university
that might be interested in giving us some space?
