I am working in a non-profit startup.
We basically want to provide a digital globe, parallel in a web app and later in a PC app.
The idea was to install a tile server on our webserver, download OSM Planet and OSM Buildings (if that’s not included in the planet download) and serve the tiles to our web app and our native PC app from our server (for cheap 0,005 cents a GB)
In the past weeks, I read a lot of Cesium articles and blog posts now, but I don’t really grasp, if our desire is possible and allowed???
If yes, how?
Could someone provide me with a set of the right links for what I need?
A combination of Cesium, OSM and Openlayers could be a solution maybe?
I read, serving tiles needs a lot of resources serverside (32-60GB of RAM), so streaming it from a free provider would be the best solution, if I didn’t misunderstand the concept of Openlayers???
Is a Contabo server a reliable and cheap solution for a tile server?
I know I am mixing up a lot here, but nothing is decided yet and I am open to every solution, as long as it is reliable and affordable!
