A scalable OpenStreetMap API server built over a distributed key/value store.

This is an experimental implementation of an API service that supports a (read-only) subset of the OSM v0.6 API.

The goal for this project is to explore an implementation of the OSM API built over a distributed key/value store (i.e., a "NoSQL" backend). The service has been designed to be easy to scale horizontally.

The implementation currently uses Membase for the data store; however its design should work with other key/value systems.

Current Status

This repository contains a working snapshot of the service. The server only supports read queries on map data.
