i’m back from Ecuador on Saturday, so i’ll be able to make the next one.
quality field observations (including a semi-fix for @lukasHD’s problem) that i’ll be writing up early next week.
@lukasHD if the TMS you’re using supports higher zoom tiles, the artifacts improve
they’re fundamentally from attempting to shrink the PDF (after it’s been created by pycairo) using JPEG compression of images
agreed that it’s ugly. we can’t easily fix it now (other than feeding it higher zooms—it defaults to 18 for unregistered sources and uses https://github.com/fieldpapers/fp-web/blob/master/config/providers.json otherwise), but will definitely include it once we’re able to tackle updating the renderer
