"Hosting and serving of geolocated pictures (like a self-hosted Street View)"[1]

This article is a stub. You can help OpenStreetMap by expanding it.

GeoVisio, aka Panoramax, is a set of free and open-source tools to host geolocated pictures and serve them under standard STAC HTTPS API endpoints. In other words, it is "like a self-hosted Street View"[1] that does not impose its own app and gives you the right to fork the server. The basic architecture is exemplified in a diagram here.

The main selling points are:

  • self-hostable, as a public instance or in your private org
  • free-licensed server (not even Mapillary or Mapilio have this)
  • freedom to choose or develop your favorite client app
  • (federation is a work in progress - public instances will be able to talk to each other and allow clients to circumvent Internet censorship, analogous to the Fediverse and Matrix)[2][3]
