So, to clarify, this only relates to the internally-managed tile
storage, and is independent of where those tiles come from. Right?
I do use different map data sources, for different kinds of maps.
OSM is just one; others include USGS Topo, Mapquest Aerial, etc. If
we're not affecting the use of other maps, and getting more
efficient tile management (disk space, especially), that works for

For those that may be wondering where this poll is going, I'm
trying to work out how to integrate MBTiles storage into
APRSIS32. I'd really like to cut and switch and auto-convert
all existing tile storage to MBTiles databases, but I cannot do
this if tile sets are shared outside of APRSIS32.
At the same time, I'm still working on using IPFS to distribute
(meta)tiles that are not immediately needed, like prefetches. I
have this (mostly) working in an upcoming version of
TestHost(APRSISMO), but of course only for my tile server,
although I've got an idea of how to support it for the OSM tile
servers as well.

A new poll has been created:
How attached are you to map tile storage in an OSM-compatible
file hierarchy? Do you share tiles outside of APRSIS32?
1. Very attached, I share multiple tile set trees with other
2. Somewhat attached, I sometimes access tile set trees with
3. Not attached at all, I only share tile sets among APRSIS32
4. Not attached at all, I never share tile sets anywhere!
5. I share tile sets, but only by manually copying tile set
trees around and sure wish this was easier!
6. I know what map tile storage is, but what is an
OSM-compatible file hierarchy?
7. What is a tile? I thought that was something that goes on
the floor and shower walls.
