I'm glad to can say that we have now an OSM-database which we can access
from WMFLabs / Toollabs.
To access the database use:
psql -h labsdb1004.eqiad.wmnet gis -U osm
This means host is labsdb1004.eqiad.wmnet, database is gis
and user is osm.
More infos about Toollabs are here:
On Labs we have a maps-project with some instances:
Inside this database you can find OSM database for mapnik rendering,
WIWOSM data and Wikipedia coordinates from Wikipedia-World project.
Kai is in the moment working to set-up the render stack.
So it's a good time for all mapnik-style-designers from Toolserver, to
start now updating styles. It would be nice if these styles are updated
end of May.
I'm optimistical that this can be a good restart of activities we had on
Toolserver. With new developments like Wikidata, with the flexibility of
labs (root-rights for everyone) and the simplicity of Tool-labs
(administrated by professionals /multimaintainer projects by default) I
see a bright future for maps and geo-data on this plattform.
Everything is still at the beginning, documentation have to write and
lot of things have to set-up. Any help is welcome.
