Beginning June 11, no more free API key for Google Maps (now Google Maps Platform) if you don't provide a credit card.
A lot of custom Google maps that have been created over the years will likely no longer work.
Time to use #leaflet and #openstreetmap
@sigon Do you have an idea how embedding maps in general will be possible without the explicit consent of a user after 25th of may? #GDPR
@dosch not an expert on GDPR, but why we should need user consent on a web map?.
@sigonBecause you are sharing personal information of your visitors (ip address) with a 3rd party without their consent
@doschUmmm, that's a good point
@sigonI am breaking my mind on how to fix this...
@sigon For using leafletjs with the hugo page builder I got something for you ;) https://github.com/L1am0/hugo-leaflet
@l1am0Thanks! I'll take a look 😃
@sigon Any tips for migration of data out of Google Maps and into OpenStreetMap?
@brianpoeIf you take a look at the leafletJS page you'll see some tutorials to create simple maps, for the basemap you can use openstreetmap instead of a google one. leafletjs.com/examples.html
@sigon I'm incorporating leaflet into the historical database system I'm building, it's very good :)
@sigon also CONTRIBUTE! the app StreetComplete is quick and easy for most users
@spudboy I had not seen StreetComplete before, it is quite nice.
Didnt know the StreetComplete app, looks good. I use JOSM, but any method is good. Thanks for the tip 😀
@sigon I used to use JOSM, too.
@sigon @mjjzf josm want loading right the other day for some reason
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
