Community vector tile server?

Mentioned this on Discord, with some agreement, so throwing it out here as well to see what people think?

Spotted a post on the forum from Brian S (Lonewolf) in the US about hosting a vector tile server: Community vector tile server & how he does it: ZeLonewolf's Diary | Host an OpenMapTiles Vector Tile Server on AWS for $19.75/month | OpenStreetMap.

Wondering if that is something that we could consider here?

I’d be happy to approach OSGeo to ask about financial support for the costs involved if we think it may be of any use?

What do you all think?


What is a tile server, and how would it help us here in Australia ?
