I’m new to forum and OSM. I am developing an app to monitor High Altitude Balloons (https://github.com/ogre/habdec) and I need to draw their GPS location on a map.
After reading of plethora of options and available software, I decided to go with following setup (based on vector tiles and 100% offline rendering):
- TileMaker: it’s simple to setup (no stack) and input data is easy to get ( geofabrik.de )
- rendering in browser, because this is portable (windows/linux)
- MapBox JS:this seems a popular and actively developed project
Now, the roadblock I hit:
I successfully exported http://download.geofabrik.de/europe/germany/berlin-140101.osm.pbf into mbTiles file. I used this configuration for tilemaker:
What got me puzzled is that exporting GZIPed file is the same size as non-compressed - but let’s move on (EDIT: file size differences are gone now, this must have been some stupid mistake on my end).
I serve the tiles using minimal python/bottle server: https://pastebin.com/j1ZENRyQ
This is minimal html: https://pastebin.com/V6hzVVx0
This isn’t displaying anything. Looking at python output it looks like tiles are being found, but what I see in browser is just background layer.
Can anybody please point me to a working intro tutorial on Tilemaker and mapbox-js working together ? Or give some tips how to debug this, because I’m not seeing any error messages.
