Change Google Maps to OpenStreetMap

Post by frju365 » Tue Apr 02, 2019 7:40 am

Hello,

I'm new here but I used already for a long time flagFox. I had a question : Could it be possible for you to change displayed map to OSM instead of Gmap ? Indeed, being tracked is not very nice, and I hope promoting free software and alternative tools is one of the goal of the project ?

Thanks in advance for your answer,

frju365

PS: I'm WEB dev and perhaps I can help. I don't know if the sources are available somewhere ?
I'm french : sorry for the mistakes I did.

I have looked at using OpenStreetMaps on the Geotool site in the past, and it is certainly possible. I haven't decided whether this is something I want to do, or indeed have time to do but it is on the list of possibles.

Just a note to say that the Google Maps implementation on the website does not and is not capable of tracking you. The website just passes latitude and longitude co-ordinates to Google to enable it to display the appropriate map. It receives no information about you.

Ok.
Well, OSM is very nice tool. You can use leaflet. It simple (however I don't know how you display the map).
I'm not still a good dev, but I want to learn. So if you need help, it would be a pleasure to help you.

I can understand how this isn't exactly the main priority, but it would be nice to have.
