This is the OGFMirror project page.

The OGFMirror project is intended to provide a failsafe backup alternative to the opengeofiction.net (OGF) website, which has suffered from unreliability and an owner who is no longer engaged in day-to-day maintenance.

The principle behind the OGFMirror is as follows: provide a website that is "live" with OGF data and functionality, but that is in a holding pattern (i.e. it is not editable). But in the event that the OGF website stops functioning, the OGFMirror could essentially *become* a replacement for OGF, with all the same data, functionality and membership.

I have blogged about this process here.

If you want to support these efforts financially, I am accepting donations here.

Current expenses are as follows:

  • ogfdev server (for the apidb i.e. "Rails Port"): $160 / month
  • tiles04 server (for the renders i.e. map tiles, ogf-carto, ogf-topo): $80 / month
  • ogfoverpass server (for ogfoverpass and ogfturbo): $80 / month

These servers above will be consolidated and costs will go down once the development process is complete and successful.
