Maybe monthly snapshots? Offer a modestly priced subscription to cover costs? Any firms out there that could automate the order fulfilment if supplied with an ISO image?

I like the idea! :-)

What should be part of the image?

  • generated maps in some common image and vector format.
  • viewer to these maps with autostart.
  • osm data for the whole section:
    • To have a good backup or startup for other servers (e.g. caches)
    • Usable by offline editors? This is a nice idea, but may have tecnically impacts. With the current implementations of the offline editors, when modifications to old data versions are uploaded, newer modifications will be overwritten. So we need to timestamp the object versions and change the offline editors to do proper versioning. This is complex!
    • To feed own made map generators
  • maybe stats of the changes to the last month.

How much of this will fit on a cd?
