We've (Matt Amos, Tom Hughes, Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason and myself) just had a discussion on IRC about an export of the GPX/GPS-data (Matt called it "planet.gpx") and I'd like to post our findings here and hope to get some more ideas/feedback in.
A few notes: * All the uploaded GPX files are kept in their original form * We'd have to respect the visibility options (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Visibility_of_GPS_traces) The easiest for now would be to just throw all the GPX files that are marked as Identifiable or Public in a compressed file and add a file with (XML?) metadata about those traces. Tom said that we'd lose 25% of all GPX files this way (they are either Private or Trackable) but it would be the easiest option for now. In a second step we could use the GPS-point data from the database to write custom GPX-files that comply with the visibility settings. I'd take a look at it if no one else is working on it but if someone else is interested I'd gladly step back :) Cheers, Lars _______________________________________________ dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/dev
