An offline map editing application for indigenous territory mapping in remote environments. It uses mapeo-core for offline peer-to-peer synchronization of an OpenStreetMap database, without any server. The map editor is based on iDEditor, a simple and easy to use editor for OpenStreetMap. The app is built with Electron.
This project is considered stable and used by over 150 communities.
For a mobile application that is compatible with Mapeo Desktop, see Mapeo Mobile.

To clone and install all dependencies and start a process to re-build the app whenever you change a file:
git clone email@example.com:digidem/mapeo-desktop.git
npm run build:translations
npm run watch
Before proceeding, you will have to wait until some background processes have culminated. You will know this has taken place when you see terminal output indicating that your app (and assets such as translations) have been built.
Then, in another terminal, run the app in development mode:
npm run dev
npm run dev will run the background process in an electron window
that can be stepped through similarly to the front-end code.
To see log messages in real-time while in debug mode, run
tail in another
tail -f USERDATA/Mapeo/logs/$DATE.debug.log
