hey @mojodna and Stamen friends, our team in Sri Lanka says good work on the new big map composer. "It's very nice"
kudos → @linzjax
awesome to hear
i also deployed some minor changes to the task server that should keep it from getting back quite as much up (and to let OSM know that it’s Field Papers requesting tiles)
I'm guessing there's no-one here today...?
thanks for the 'in my opinion' best atlas renderer on the web. The only problem I have is the very visible compression of the pdf when printed. Even the logo in the top left corner has jpeg artefacts. labels on the maps are also quite pixelated
perhaps you want to add a dpi selection to the site. or check the compression settings of the pdf creator
we have a bit of time proposals are due on April 17th
@mojodna Message from rbanick that appeared in our Gitter room: hi field papers lovers. we're getting an "Atlas Creation Failed" error when we try to create an atlas. Could someone look into it? It's a little urgent as we have some field surveys starting tomorrow.
hi @ian-ross sorry -- internet problems at my previous location meant I thought I was posting to here
and yes, our team is reporting some atlas creation problems
@rbanick@ian-ross@mojodna I'm about to get on a plane, but I'll try to restart the server now
Okay, I think I just triggered a restart. Let us know if it starts working again in a few minutes. If not, @mojodna can probably debug in a couple hours.
a couple hours is OK though, don't panic. we have backup plans.
I'm not sure if an in-process atlas would survive reboots. The depth of my knowledge ends about there. Does it work if you try to recreate an atlas with similar settings?
that's actually what I did
sorry that wasn't clear above
oh, I see
hmm. And I don't think there's any way to figure out the parameters that caused the failure, without diving into the database (and maybe not even then). What, roughly, were the settings you were using?
Like, the extent, the tile layer, etc.
I had a 4x3 tile grid in a very small (500m x 500m or less) area of Sri Lanka
standard OSM basemap
this is more or less standard for the areas our team creates. sometimes they go a little larger
