Change USFS Roads background imagery

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 11 months 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.

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.

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? 😫
