Small footprint vector maps for "Internet In a Box"

Saturday, 3:00pm – 5 min
George Hunt

I have been working with “internet in a box” volunteers for about 5 years. We recently used openlayers, and to reduce by a factor of 10 the size of our offline mapping capability.

We’d like to share our success in bringing together the work of many open source mapping developers into an application that runs on a $70 raspberry pi - and still leaves room for khan academy, and wikipedia in the local language.
