I am responsible for the openBmap project and I am now looking for people or an organization that will be charge of hosting the project as I will not be able to maintain this activity anymore.
openBmap is a free and open map of wireless communicating objects (e.g. cellular antenna, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth).
It provides tools to mutualize data, create and access this map.
Open source applications are available for Android2 phones, WindowsPhone6 and the openmoko freerunner freesmartphone.org phones.
It is mainly based on openstreetmap and openlayers.
All the data (raw or produced) are open, based on creative commons licence for cellular data and on odbl for wifi data.
Hosting the project means hosting the server in charge of the raw data processing, performing the database maintenance, backuping the data…
More details about the configuration necessary to host the project is available on the wiki in the global architecture paragraph
If you are interested or if you know someone that could be interested, do not hesitate to contact us http://openbmap.org/contact.php5 for a more detailed discussion.
The current planning is the following:
*** initial announcement to find an organization or an individual to bring home the full project
*** post on openstreetmap forum to find a hoster
*** send a mail to all the openBmap contributors to find a hoster
*** collect raw data and generate maps will be performed every three days instead of everyday
*** collect raw data, raw data being not processed (maps, stats not generated)
*** new openBmap main page with raw data, generated data available
*** online API closed
*** stop collection of raw data - main page announcement
