Hi,

This project have now reached a level where it would be possible to render and update even big maps at a automatic, scedulled base. Unfortunatelly my current equipment is not suitable for this – my Thinkpad T410 (the Laptop I earn my living with) is running constantly wit a CPU-temperature of 75-80°C that lead to a destroyed mainboard last year.
The render time on this machine for the “ALPS” is between 4-5 days – thats too much by far for any serious update strategy.
This leads to the fact that a new, powerfull dedicated rendermachine is needed to raise this project to a reliable, professional level the user can count on.
If you want to support openandromaps please take a look at my wishlist. For bigger donations it’s – of couse – possible to set a banner in sidebar of this website. Currently this website is viewed by 8000 unique visitors per month and constantly growing.

I’m aware that this is a big wishlist. However, the other way to collect money would be to fill every corner of this site by adds – a way I dont want an I dont will go….

I’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all people who have supported openandromaps by their donations. With this money most of the running costs for hardware repair, hosting and the fast DSL-Line were covered so far – THANKS !!

best regards
Christian
