Development of a server to manage a customised local version of OpenStreetMap in Ireland.
In: GIS Research UK 18th Annual Conference GISRUK 2010, 14th – 16th April 2010, London.
In this paper we describe the software architecture of a prototype web-based GIS system for the
deliver environmental research data in Ireland. The central component in this system is
OpenStreetMap which provides the base layers of geographical data. An OpenStreetMap data
collection campaign for our university town was carried out earlier this year yieldeding a spatially
rich OpenStreetMap representation of Maynooth. Our server (OpenStreetMap database, supporting
software, and specially generated map tiles) has been used by several GIS and location-based services
projects in our department. One such example is a mobile device-based pedestrian navigation system
is described in this paper. We describe some of the components of our server system. This includes a
description of the management of the local copy of the OpenStreetMap database and the generation of
sets of customised map tiles.
