For some needs we need an OSM-style map displaying the area before the reservoir was constructed and thus displaying the historical shore line. There are some historical aerial photos (not provided by google, but licensed for any usage http://warfly.ru/?lat=55.797473&lon=49.047717&z=12 ) tiled on the manner of google maps, and some old maps stored as large jpeg images (http://xn--80aaaaaa8d3awdlhbbd.xn--p1ai/tatarstan/raritet/volga-kama-pojma-1950).
So, what we should consequently do to be able to produce such kind of online map?
- Setup own OSM instance (?) with clear postgis (?) (how?)
- Setup the map drawing client that is able to provide tiled WW2 aerial photos and jpeg maps bent to the map? How can we do that, which type of client supports it? If noone, but there are some open source that can be easyly programmed to make this support available with little coding (I hope for my Java coding skills), which opensource client is the most suitable for it?
- What is the best way to provide the isohypses information to make the map displaying the heights? Unfortunately they are not actually stored in osm and will not be available on our sources.
- What is the best way to make it available on the www. I know little about postgis, mapnik and tilecache usage, but I'm not sure that it is the best possible technologies stack.
The full guide in answer will be perfect, or even some ideas for some specific points asked are welcome! Thanks in advance!
