Change USFS Roads background imagery

Reported by: Glassman Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: External imagery source Version:
Keywords: usa Cc:


The current background imagery provided by RichardF has an opaque background. New imagery is available with a transparent background making tracing more accurate. I did discuss this with Richard. He is okay with making the change. I was going to edit the wiki to change the entry but I don't have permissions.

I will attached a file with the new entries. This is the first time I tried to create a data url for a icon. I used site to create the base64 data.

You have rights to change that. What message do you get so that you assumed you have no rights?

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by Glassman

I don't see an edit option on the page. Reading the wiki, it said that not all pages are editable by everyone. I assumed that the map page was one of those.

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by stoecker

No. Even an anonymous user can edit these pages. Did you scroll down to the bottom? Which page are we talking about?

Replying to Don-vip:

Maps/USA#U.S.ForestServiceroads I guess?

I fear it is maps, that's why I asked :-)

Please minify the png file before you convert it to base64, see wiki:Help/Base64

I found the edit button - I can't believe I missed that. After minifying the png file, the wiki page has be updated.

The both sources are very different. We should better add both instead to "misuse" one entry.

comment:9 Changed 3 years ago by Klumbumbus

We have now 3 URLs under (nearly) the same name, but which show quite different data, i.e. (partly) other roads are displayed:

overwritten in josm and still in ELI{zoom}/{x}/{y}.png
now in josm
added in ELI{zoom}/{x}/{y}?access_token=pk.eyJ1IjoiZ2xhc3NtYW4iLCJhIjoiRjk3dWdwYyJ9.Tg_fMJWxygeKBgVTrZHmGA

Especially the new josm URL shows nearly complete other roads. Glassman, maybe you mixed up the URLs? Could you please clarify this?

Can you please comment?

@Klumbumbus - thanks for pointing pointing out the difference. You are correct - the url I provided was for USFS Trails. I wasn't planning on publishing that one quite yet. I've updated the Wiki.

@stoecker - thanks for the reminder.

Ok, now we have a fourth URL:

But I suppose that could be merged with{zoom}/{x}/{y}?access_token=pk.eyJ1IjoiZ2xhc3NtYW4iLCJhIjoiRjk3dWdwYyJ9.Tg_fMJWxygeKBgVTrZHmGA

(only {switch:a,b,c,d}.tiles. vs. api.)

The problem right now is that I get only grey tiles from both URLs. arrrhhh... can't updating imagery entries be quick and simple only once? 😫
