You know when you spend all that time building a really slick webpage with a great map feature and then find out it completely doesn’t work when the ship loses connectivity? Well I do (with OpenVDMv2). Here’s how I mitigated the situation.
Quick update on some subtle improvements recently added to OpenVDMv2. As it turns out most research vessels do not have a gigabit internet connection. This makes leveraging cloud-based resources such as public map tile servers difficult. To meet this challenge OpenVDMv2 will begin deploying with a stand-alone map-tile proxy server.
