Implementation of OSM (OpenStreetMap)

  • | Permalink

    Hi everybody at Event Tribe,

    can you please give me a short estimate how much work it would be to replace GoogleMaps with OSM (OpenStreetMap) in EventCalendar?
    Easy – Medium or Heavy? 🙂

    Do you know if it has been done before?
    Would this be a task for your Custom Enterprise Solutions team?

    Thank you
    & have a nice day

    Hello tb,

    Thanks for getting in touch! Wow, what a great question! 🙂

    I’m not strong in dev so I asked the team. This is what I got as a response:

    “Medium (and on the lighter side of medium if they are talking only about TEC but perhaps the slightly harder side of medium if they mean TEC + PRO, inc. map view with markers etc.)”

    Also you will find some other notes and tips in this thread here:

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Cheers,
    Andras

    Oh, sorry, I left out 2 questions.

    No, I haven’t heard or seen that anybody implemented this before. Sounds like an awesome project though!

    I guess the Enterprise Team could do it if you have a project of a scale of $25.000 and up.

    What I can also recommend is that if you think that is something you would like as a feature then visit our User Voice Page and make a request there or upvote an existing one. (I found this.)

    Cheers,

    Hallo Andras,

    thank you for your reply.
    We will discuss this further than, Medium sounds like manageable, but we dont have a 25k budget for this feature.
    But anyway i voted for the UserVoice thread aswell.

    Have a nice day.
