Map Tiles, either in a static directory or available via some tile server.
MAP TILE SERVER INFO
-------------
Without a map tile server, Mesh users may not see any map tiles. On the mesh, you cannot expect the client
to have internet access in order to retrieve the tiles, you must provide them yourself, one way or another.
It is way beyond the scope of this README file to help in setting up a map tile server.
You are unfortunaly on your own there.
It is a time consuming and computationaly expensive process, but can be done on "normal" hardware.

If you attempt it, be patient, you will get it wrong a few times but in the end you might be suprised. :)

Use crontab -e to edit your users cron jobs.
UPDATING
------------
Simply run a "git pull" from the meshmap directory and the scripts will be updated from the git repo.
The user-settings.inc, meshmap-settings.ini, cronscript.sh, and custom.inc files will *not* be affected by updating.
If you make changes beyond the user editable files I encourage you to perhaps push the changes upstream,
please contact kg6wxc@gmail.com if you wish to do so.
I am making changes all the time, it would be a good idea to run "git pull" from time to time to find any updates.
NOTES ON USAGE OF THE MAP PAGES
------------
There is an "admin" page, which is still in the works, what is there now does work tho.
Try to load up: http://<hostname>/meshmap/admin/admin.php in your web browser.
I've tried to provide instructions on the admin pages themselves.
From the admin pages you can "fix" a nodes location,
which can be helpful for those users that forget the "-" in front of their longitude. :)
The admin pages also allow for the addition of "Non Mesh" Markers, fire stations, police stations, EOC's , etc...
CONTRIBUTING
------------
Contribution is encouraged!!
I can't think of everything!
If you find an improvement, typo or whatever, please, send an email to kg6wxc@gmail.com and we can get you
setup with write access if you'd like!
