Yesterday, I have managed to install my own tile server for One country and we can see the map, its working.

The END Goal is, We will build a Vehicle tracking software by using our tiles. Currently We are on learning stage as we never work with OSM or its API, Since we are going to host everything in-house, I just wanted to get a Basic concept,

From Administrator point of view what tools I need to configure to allow our Developer to work with Openstreetmap for Vechile tracking?

I refer to this site https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Develop, so do just Need to install Rubyport ? That will allow developer to start working? I already have Tiles working.


I think you are looking to make a complete system with API's, Devices and Servers. The whole answer would have to incorporate many parts.

An alternative is an existing application traccar which is open source and should be in the line of what you are doing.

  • I mean, what Do i need to use or install for creating API so that developer can use those API to show real time vechile in open street map ? We are in learning stage now ..we are not going to use any 3rd party solution. – alammd May 26 '18 at 16:37
