I don’t want to know suggestions, I can google that, I would love to hear what people are using like @bedHedd’s great post A Open Source Google Maps Alternative? OsmAnd+ and Pinpoi Explored
I would like to know is what everyone uses alternatively to garmin basecamp and google earth to map out trips, hikes, places of intrest and what not. Would love work flows from phone to desktop. I don’t want to use Bascamp or Google Earth, I do love me some open source that is all mine, but I don’t mind if it’s apart of the work flow.
I have a few Garmin products and started using nextcloud maps for basic placement of point of interest. I know you can upload openstreetmaps to the garmin devices with some caveats (though I have yet to try.) What I really want is something I can put all my data to, phone and gps plus mark on my computer, in one place and sync it to all devices like an offline google maps. maybe this is simple with OSMAnd+ and OSM in general but I haven’t tried.
Programs I’ve seen:
- Mapillary - Open Source street view
- OsmAnd - phone based OSM
- Open street maps - online version (would love to know a self hosted one that works as good)
- Qgis - Free and Open Source Geographic Information System
- OSgeo projects - OSGeo’s list of FOSS map/geo projects. Haven’t used more than OSM and Qgis.
