OpenMapKit Server is the lightweight NodeJS server component of OpenMapKit that handles the collection and aggregation of OpenStreetMap and OpenDataKit data.
This software is intended to run both on low-power embedded Linux systems, as well as on higher powered, cloud-based servers.
OpenMapKit Server is 100% database free! All data is persisted on the file system.

If you want to run OpenMapKit Server for your field mapping survey, use the POSM Build Installation instructions.
deployments is the OpenMapKit deployment API. This services deployment data in the deployments data directory.
