The ones I typically use or see functionality with:

  • OSM Default
  • OSM German
  • ESRI WorldImagery
  • ESRI WorldTopo (which utilizes the Federal-level NationalMap...I've found it useful on occasion)

Though I don't currently use it for TM, Thunderforest OpenCycle would useful if we ever branch into USBR.

HERE Hybrid would be useful to keep as an alternative set of imagery.

I agree with Sandor's comment regarding Thunderforest Spinal.

Likewise a Transport Map should rail be branched into.

My recommendation is to only remove the ones that don't actually work, or that we've had to disable for the sake of avoiding being billed (Mapbox).

Any options that are less popular but still work, just bury them at the bottom of the list. I see this as a "why remove functionality if it presents no burden to keep it" situation.


My thoughts exactly.

Also I use ESRI World Gray Canvas a lot for trip planning (highlight untraveled, and even really short unclinched segments pop) and would prefer to see it remain.

I've added a few more Jawg tiles and some Carto tiles to the version on tmstage.teresco.org .

The new set of tiles is on the production server.  The immediate concern is to make sure I didn't break anything.  But also, if I removed something that was working and that would be useful to you, let me know and I can likely restore.

The pages and maps in the HB do not seem to be loading.  This may be why.  (see this)

Works fine, thanks!

I can order them however people like.

I'd like to see "Open Street Map Default" and "Esri WorldImagery" kinda outstanding so that we can quickly change between them - in wpt editor and HB!

"Esri WorldImagery" was the last "Esri" entry but it is more hidden now :(

I'm not seeing any problems from multiple browsers here.  What is the "this" in "This may be why."?

It must be a Chrome issue.  The page starts to load, but stops before any labels are shown and it says "URL Placeholder".

I just checked Edge and everything opened as normal.  TMStage works fine on Chrome as well.

Works fine for me here in Chromium now; did not previously.
Maybe a JavaScript caching issue? Force reload? Ctrl+F5?

I'm particularly liking the Stamen Toner Lite option.  Both traveled and especially untraveled routes show up REALLY well on that one!

I just tried all the new tile options using the Maine map.  I was pleased to see that Thunderforest Spinal Map changed Bangor to "Headbangor".

LMAO! The two in the Metal Kingdom also get the same treatment.

Not the one in Ireland though, which remains plain "Bangor". Probably too small.

"City" seems to mutate into "City of Rock", so there's stuff like "City of Rock of London", as well as the less clunky and more-what-they-were-going-for "Oklahoma City of Rock" formation.

And there's nothing at Stonehenge - which is surely a disgrace for a map named after Spinal Tap!
