A us-only taginfo. Frequently the tag usage distribution varies between
regions which is why there local taginfo instances for a few countries


The taginfo sqlite databases total about 4GB for the planet so this
shouldn't take much space, but I'm not sure how much CPU and disk is
involved in creating the db.

Hi talk-us!

I'm putting together a request to upgrade the OSM US server infrastructure
and would love to have the community's feedback. To learn more about what
sort of resources the OSM US chapter currently has to offer, check out the
wiki page I put together: 

In general, though, we have a primary machine with lots of memory and a fair
amount of disk.

This hardware is currently used to serve imagery tiles proxied from various
sources and rendered from various Mapnik stylesheets. There's also an
osm2pgsql database that is kept up to date on an hourly basis.

Are you working on a project related to OSM and need resources to keep it
going? Do you have an idea for improving OSM in the US but don't know how to
proceed? Let me know and we can discuss what sort of hardware might be
