Technical details

The route overlay is updated minutely and is normally 2-5 minutes behind the OSM server. The date in the upper left corner shows the last update. Updates of the underlying Mapnik map are not within this site's control. Depending on the current load of the OSM server they take between a minute and a few days.

The machine runs standard Debian Linux with a toolchain consisting of pyosmium, Postgresql and Mapnik 2.0. osgende takes care of some postprocessing on the database before rendering. The website is served using CherryPy. The source code is available under a GPL licence. For more information visit the project page at GitHub.
