Noname layer frustrations

Posted by daveemtb on 12 June 2009 in English (English)

I've been waiting all week for the Nonames layer to be updated, only to find that it's been updated with data that's about a week out of date!

This is making collecting the last few road names in my town very tricky! :(

If only the minutely one was working since API 0.6. :(

Currently the NoNames layer (along with all other CloudMade styles) is getting updated based on weekly planet dumps. The current intended schedule is to get this weekly data (snapshop from a Thursday morning) into the Cloudmade systems by the end of the day on Friday each week, but complications can mean this doesn't happen until the following week. Hence the NoNames map right now is most using a snapshot from Thursday 4th, but hopefully (possibly maybe) some time today it will start showing the snapshot from yesterday.

At some point we hope to improve the turnaround time by switching to a diff based updating process.
