Proposed layers

Is any of these proposed layers meeting requirement "Internally supported. The service provider/author must be in favor of having their tile layer on the website." from Featured tile layers/Guidelines for new tile layers? If not, I propose to move these layers to Tiles#Servers Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 22:28, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Notification about fr style: User_talk:Verdy_p#Featured_tile_layers Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 22:34, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
    • So adding it here was not made on behalf os style maintainers/operators - see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Verdy_p&diff=1312359&oldid=1312295 Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 10:19, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
      • Misleading claim of support removed Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 18:21, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
        • I dind't understand what you need. Christian Quest (style maintener and one sysadmin of osm.fr) him self edit this entry Marc marc (talk) 09:36, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
          • OSM-FR was added in [1] by Verdy_p who was known for weird edits (and ended with infinitely long block). So I suspicious about whatever this edit is OK. So you think that [2] is enough to demonstrate that there is support for adding it ? Is there any chance of a clear support started somewhere like with Cyclosm in http://listes.openstreetmap.fr/wws/arc/association/2020-06/msg00008.html ? As explanation: I made this edits as entire bunch of "proposals" appeared apparently without any support from operators of given projects. Given Verdy_p involvement I assumed that the same happened here. Sorry for a temporary damage, I already repaired Cyclosm entry. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 22:48, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
              • although the addition of verdy_p silk totament fancy (he's not in the team able to know if this kind of proposal is technically realistic and wished), the fact that cquest modified the entry shows that the support is ok (and technically realistic like all the other layers hosted by osm-fr. however the question is elsewhere: is a style in a specific language and with a single maintainer suitable to be a major layer on osm.org? it's not up to me to answer.Marc marc (talk) 20:05, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
                • "with a single maintainer" applies to for example bicycle layer displayed already. Personally I have no trouble with style in a specific language, as long as it is not a default one. I rather consider it as something interesting, what should make its inclusion more likely Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 07:40, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Resolved: most are removed, remaining have or will have specific sections, FR one is now correctly described Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 16:04, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Proposals without support from maintainers

Does it make any sense to add "proposals" not supported by people hosting map style and maintaining it? Main blocker is funding and support for hosting Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 18:32, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

of course not. if added with "support ok", it should be made by support it-self or have a summary with info about it. if not, it should be "Investigate" Marc marc (talk) 10:04, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
I will remove "Dark Matter" entry soon as not supported by maintainers of that style Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 12:39, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
I removed Dark Matter and some other "proposals" not supported by actually involved people. Now I plan to check remaining projects, for now I created OpenSeaMap section Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 05:42, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

C933103 additions

C933103 added numerous proposals in https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Featured_tile_layers&type=revision&diff=1999425&oldid=1988028 but is not maintainer of any of this projects.

Are you planning to reach out to this maintainers? I am dubious whatever it is OK to bother them about this, but maybe it would be OK to do it tactfully and carefully?

But I am quite dubious about adding proposals while not representing maintainer of this projects Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 22:33, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

I plan to remove this additions Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 07:41, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Multilingual Maps support

Currently, OSM renders on only name. Countries like India, which has multilanguages users doesn't know there is an option to enter the local in there language. This is leading to lot of re-work. -- Naveenpf (talk) 01:50, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

If you are aware about someone operating map without this limitation, willing to sponsor deployment as selectable layer - feel free to contact them, maybe there will be open for such contribution! (just do it politely, noone is obligated to sponsor something like that) Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 05:29, 15 August 2020 (UTC)


Is OpenSeaMap internally supported?

Added in https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Featured_tile_layers&diff=640514&oldid=636212 - not sure what is the current status and whatever this edit was made on behalf of maintainers and operators of their servers Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 05:41, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

added by someone who has "Based on this I initiated OpenSeaMap.org - the free nautical chart." in profile Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 05:45, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Would it make sense to add commercial hiking map?

I think OSM main page desperately needs a layer for hikers. But from what I surveyed there isn't any that is pretty enough and covers the while globe. There is though one commercial render of OSM data into outdoor map that is updated frequently at en.mapy.cz (e.g. https://en.mapy.cz/s/mulezecuru). But before I would even try to contact them, is it possible to have such a map featured? Obviously the code is not available and another thing seems to be the for Czech republic they still use their own data and OSM data is used for the rest of the world. --Mashin (talk) 17:30, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Featured_tile_layers/Guidelines_for_new_tile_layers - "Open data. The proposed tile layer must not use any non-free data." Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 19:33, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
I saw that. That's why I asked. --Mashin (talk) 17:39, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Max zoom level

What is "Uniqueness" in zoom levels? Especially for layers where it is not high? Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 15:15, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
