Openandromaps are currently being switched step by step to a non-commercial, professional Download-Server.

The maps will be served from the same server that hosts the “Geofabrik” – thanks to everyone who supported this move.
This step was a crucial point for the whole project couse it was clear to see that GoogleDrive would stop this sooner or later, there were already problems this March.
Currently more than 200 Maps are served from openandromaps, this means 70GB of disc-space and lots of Terrabytes of traffic every month – a volume that is not possible to serve with a commercial server with no budget.

The move starts with Germany and Europe and should be finished next weekend. If there are any problems please drop me a line.

Best regards, christian

BTW: Currently the maps are synced by ftp with the server – a clear nonsense currently accepted by the server-admin.
However, next weeks should see a Synology-NAS-System for syncing by rsync – this will cost another 350Euros, I hope you will support this project by some bucks (a few are better than none) ;-)
