Some day we hope to use peermaps and/or the associated software stack to finally incorporated decentralized mapping into all Delta Chat apps ... keep up the good work, substack!


running the whole peermaps ingest with some improvements and tuning to minimize the transfer size for queries on the final result


@lutindiscret It's an evolving mostly rust based implementation of map data storage, distribution and rendering that aims to provide a data format both suitable for OpenGL rendering and editing, customizing on the end device without revisiting tile servers.

@delta so it might be useful for a "share your location" feature, is that right?

@lutindiscret yes, on Android and iPhone this feature exists but uses the opt-in mapbox service (device location is not revealed to them other than querying and caching tiles from their servers).
