thanks for the answer. Hope you will be able to solve it once.
I tatally agree with you, maps for wikipedia don't require a fast update, and
for the time I'll use the ITO layer, which seems to be up to date, at least
reflect the edits I made in the last weeks/month.
What was strange, is that when I did some "lightening" edits in one region, and
wanted to check the results a few days later, I normally got at first the
"...more OSM coming soon" logo on the tiles. Zoom OUT then zoom IN, and normally
the logo disappear (if the server is not overloaded) but then the layer doesn't
reflect the las t edits. That's why I thought that the rendering was made
correctly (recently) but on an old database version. And once you've got a
region rendered wrongly, I never see the "...more OSM coming soon" logo coming,
event If I look again on the same region several month later.
If this can help you find the problem / solution I am glad.
Ok for the "dirty trick". on Mapnik.
PS: BTW I didn't receive the map-l mails (nor mine, nor yours), I had to look in
the archive to find your answer. Maybe my subscription was too "new", or the
fact that I've asked for a grouped delivery of mails make it takes several days
to be delivered?
I'have made in the last months quite a large number of edit on the OSM dtabase,
and added the "lit=yes" or "lit = no" tag to many items.
The toolserver used to follow my edits although with quite a delay, might be
some weeks. But now, there are edits made in february, which are still not up to
date on toolserver.
I refer here to the page:
I don't know exacly why, but I've seen on the OSM platform status
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Platform_Status) that the xapi server fafnir
is out of disk spaceand that the api is overloaded and out of date.
- Is that the reason why the toolserver is not updated anymore?
- How to solve this issue?
- What it the "normal" update rate of toolserver/lightening layer?
Yves, OSM enthusiast
the wikimedia OSM tile server on toolserver has been running for quite a
while now including the integration into the German, French and Russian
wikipedia as well as some other Wikipedia's through the OSM gadget.
From the recent quietness of this list and from Kolossos' talk at
FOSSGIS, it appears that the technical side of things is working fairly
smooth? Are there any major issues left from the perspective of tile
serving and the OSM gadget?
I was also wondering if there are any thoughts, impressions or data on
what the general impression of this integration has been on the general
audience and if it has been received well? Did wikipedian's like having
the maps easily accessible in the articles? Are people aware of this
option? How did they react to that OSM might not always be complete? And
did some of wikipedia's editors start editing OSM data to improve the
map for "their" article?
I was also wondering if there are any plans to expand the use of OSM in
wikipedia? Particularly, do more wikipedia's want to activate their
language version? What would it take to integrate it into the english
Sorry for all the questions, but I was curious to hear how people see
the current status and its future. If there are any wiki pages, talks or
other material about the current status of the OSM wikipedia integration
I'd be thankful for any further links as well.
Hello, I made a little statistic over the last 4 months about the
requests of wikipedia-POIs-Layer in different languages (see below). The
log runs only one day each month.
I can say that we have nearly 80.000 requests per day (Also zooming and
panning create a new request, so the statistic for users/day would be
The big surprise for me was that Russian and Polish leading this
statistic with the most requests. Have somebody an idea to explain this?
What is there secret for success?
