Before you travel, you have to do lots of prep. work.

Like map the buildings from aerial imagery into #OpenStreetMap so there's some base for you to work with when you do the on-the-ground survey ๐Ÿ˜…

imma proud to be a queer member of #OpenStreetMap.

First task: Write this custom static site generator software (yes in #Rust ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿฆ€โš™๏ธ) and lots and lots of #SQL ๐Ÿ˜

Show thread

I'm rewriting it with a static site generator, so (at the backend) it will only need to serve up raw static HTML pages.

Currently Townlands.ie is a Django web application ( github.com/osmie/osm-irish-tow ), which only works on old versions of Django/PostgreSQL/Ubuntu (because I haven't spent the time to keep it up to date ๐Ÿ˜…)

Show thread

I'm working on an internal rewrite of Townlands.ie which should make it much more robust and less likely to go down. ๐Ÿ™‚

Show thread

But never fear! Townlands.ie isn't going away. ๐Ÿ™‚ The premier #OpenStreetMap based map of historical admin boundaries in #Ireland will continue! ๐Ÿ™‚

Logaimn.ie, the #Irish Placenames database, has gotten a new website design. ๐Ÿ™‚ logainm.ie/

Oh the matrix server is broken again. ๐Ÿ™„ I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

I could write a #Rust programme to do this, but I can't do _everything_ in rust.

OR CAN I?

What's the state of the art for doing #geo processing in #javascript in the browser?

e.g. I have a ~60km GPX file, ~100 points, and I wanna know the nearest distance of each point to the line.
I know exactly how to do this in postgis, or even by hand. I know basic JS. How can I do this in JS on a webpage? (pref. non nodejs)
