Build a craigslist Scale Map Installation with OSM Data

A session at State of the Map US 2013

Sunday 9th June, 2013

2:00pm to 2:30pm (PST)

Craigslist serves 50 billion monthly page views to 60 million users across 700 sites in 70 countries. Self hosting a complete map service from top to bottom at this scale presents many challenges including:

  • live updating of OSM data
  • map styling for sense of purpose
  • rendering and serving map tiles
  • geocoding user input
  • searching geodetic data
  • displaying geodetic results in meaningful ways
  • giving back to OSM with user data feedback

In this talk Dennis will address all these issues and discuss how his team implemented the above at craigslist scale.
