Thanks for the kind words and the link
I have not come across that licence, it looks great!
PS. I am also looking for a commercial partner to help develop this further
and I know mapbox do some great work ;-) I was even looking at the job
offers earlier today!
PPS. Feel free to upload some data and get your location on the map :-)
Kindest regards + happy mapping,
