- Standard -- OK, lets say this the universal default. The name is a quite non-descriptive, why not call it roads? Or driving?
- CyclOSM -- Why not call it cycle map? This is some internal project name?
- Cycle map -- duplicate, why does it need 2?
- Transport map -- What kind of transport? Call it "Public Transport".
- Tracestrack Topo -- no idea what this means.
- OVPNKarte -- again no idea. Looks like another public transport map. Why does it need 2?
- Humanitarian -- Here I have really no idea. Is this for disaster relief personnel, so it displays hospitals and such?
Topography and map don't match up for Fairway Rock
Some islands are not named at any zoom level
And it looks like this is a proprietary fork of Carto? Its inclusion on the OSM website is essentially an advertisement?
Though I find myself looking for a provider of geocoding and navigation for a freelance project of mine.
I know that I could probably self-host OSRM and OpenMapTiles, but the hardware requirements make using a cloud service feel easier.
At the same time I can't really decide between something like Mapbox and MapTiler (or possibly even cheaper alternatives that I don't know about), since a lot of the APIs feel a bit vendor locked.
On the other hand, it's nice how many options there are, even though the industry feels like it's moving towards vector tiles which perform mich worse for me, albeit look better.
I want to just make my own raster map for a limited area and it's not trivial to do.
So the data is open, but the software is either not free or too hairy or poorly documented so you can pay them to use it.
It's still better than Google map.
I installed OSMand via f-droid and I did not find it very readable
It looks really nice visually though.
Mastodon, you've let the side that's fighting for a better web down.
Shame on you!
