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.

Current expenses are as follows:

  • ogfdev server (for the apidb i.e. "Rails Port"): $160 / month
  • tiles04 server (for the renders i.e. 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.

Most recent changesets (as replicated from OGF server).

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