Re: Editing XML for digipeating

Rob Giuliano
 

Some TNCs (Like Byonics TT4 and Argent Data Systems T3) can be in KISS mode and still handle other functions, but most commercial TNCs (KPC-3 and KAM) are pretty much a dumb MODEM in KISS mode.  Things like DIGI, mailboxes, etc. are unavailable in KISS mode.  To truly work with APRS applications like APRSIS32 the TNC really needs to be in KISS mode.

Hi.

I'm using www.thunderforest.com tileserver.
Free registrations allow to get 150,000 tiles per month for free.
I think for regular use is OK.

Re: Assistance please

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

We can help better with more information.

What is the callsign-SSID of the station in question?

What TNC do you have and what interface to the TNC (serial COMM port, it appears)?

What radio is the TNC connected to?

What port type did you use in APRSISCE/32?  KISS is only for Kenwood APRS radios.  Simply(KISS) is for TNCs that you have locked into KISS mode.

Re: OSM Tile servers - orders

Hi Arnold,

 

It is easy without crazy amounts of work.

 

Open the XML for editing. I prefer to use a program called Notepad++.

 

Look for the section that looks like this:

 

tile.openstreetmap.org

<Port>80

/

1

C:/APRSIS32/Tiles/Original/</Path>

1

14

5

0

19

<RevisionHours>0

 

You only have four so it will be quick. I have 97!

 

Cut and paste you’re the different blocks in the order you need them. Then save file. Don’t bother with changing the tileserver number. It gets renumbered automatically.

 

Good luck!

Lynn,

Is there a way to change the order of the Tile Sets in APRSISCE, without excessive xml file editing?

I have four Tile Sets and it would be nice and easier to understand visually if I could put LynnsOSM Tile Set either first or just after the original OSM Tile set.

It just sounds like it could be dangerous xml file editing.

The URL on my server wasn't the same tile, but here's those two.

Mine:

b.tile.openstreetmap.org:

But the FRENCH OpenStreetMap tile server (quoted by Fred) is using different rendering rules:

Can I have the files from your server go into the same directory as the files from OpenStreetMap.org?  In other words, are they the same and compatible tiles, just from a different server?

 

If that’s OK, then I assume I could have two different Map Tile sets configured into the same directory because it is really just one set of tiles.  So I can get slow delivery when I have the time, and “express delivery” when needed.  Am I still correct?

So, if you're using OSM's main tile servers, please do NOT do massive
downloads of tiles.  We don't want APRSISCE/32 to be blocked for everyone.

If you want to download large areas of tiles for offline use, you can
set up a Configure / Map / Tile Set pointing to my current OSM tile
server.  It's slow, but it'll eventually deliver your tiles.

Re: OSM Tile servers

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Yes, I've had a rendering server running for over 2 years now. Entire planetary database, updated every hour from OSM data.

My server runs in a Ubuntu VMWare VM on my Windows server.  The VM has access to 6 cores, 6GB RAM, and 5 SSDs totalling 1.5TB of space distributed over several logical volume manager volumes with various database tables on each volume to distribute the I/O load.  The smallest SSD (111GB) is dedicated to holding the flatnodes file (for those that are familiar with OSM tile rendering servers).

So, the rendering is slow because it's not a screaming machine nor does it have access to loads of RAM (the server only has 24GB), but the biggest bottleneck is my outbound Internet bandwidth.  I've got 25.7Mbps down, but only 6.44Mbps up (just measured at speedtest.net).

Oh, and I recently moved my Ethereum test and main network clients into that VM.  Parity and geth are much more stable under Ubuntu than they were under Windoze.

If you want to see the munin performance graphs of the tile server, check out the following URL:

http://ldeffenb.dnsalias.net:14171/munin/localdomain/localhost.localdomain/index.html

(Ignore the Master Bath Hot Water temp, that's another whole story!)

Lynn (D) - KJ4ERJ - Author of APRSISCE for Windows Mobile and Win32

PS.  If you want to set up your own OSM tile server, the instructions are at:

https://switch2osm.org/

And some notes about my next-to-last (re)build of the tile server is on the Wiki at:

You are correct in most of your assumptions.  I try to keep my rendering rules updated with the latest, but sometimes I lag behind for a few weeks.   The tiles are compatible, but they may be disjoint for some period of time if my server isn't using the same rendering rules as their server for a bit.
