Project Proposal: Map Tile Distribution and Master Directory of Map Tile Distributors

During a recent mapping project implementation at work I realized the open source map content is limited and that the resources to share that content are even more limited. There a few map tile servers out there all of them using resources of open source volunteers, and those servers are being hammered by millions of users. The map content is not usualy a light content, it's all bitmap images the are already compressed.  Many servers go offline because they can't take the load or that they have reached their maximum bandwidth for the day.

Mapping Public Facilities of Kosovo

Another project we have been working on is Mapping Public Kosovo Facilities, which has been supported by Unicef Innovations Lab. The main goal of this project was mapping all existing public facilities in Kosovo.While we went a long way towards achieving our goal, the lack of information was a hindrance.
