iD should provide a GPX overlay tile layer that shows all public GPX traces uploaded to OSM.org.

Not at all in alpha1, possibly a little bit past then (via togeojson possibly), but I think this should be very far away from the main purpose of iD at this point.

Agreed on not an Alpha 1 priority, but I think a plain GPX layer just like Bing would be great in principle.

For ref:

Basic options:

  • Render a high-zoom layer that shows points
  • Implement this as a vector layer
  • Just import specific GeoJSON points
  • Get osm.org to provide this layer

To me ID is useless until I can see my recorded hiking tracks in an GPX-layer (by file access or download from my OSM uploaded tracks.)

Indeed. Fwiw, the "X is useless" comment form is one of my least favorites, for a number of reasons. This is currently blocked by OSM sysadmins getting a planet-wide GPX dump public - until then the options (gpstile for instance) are a bit perf-intensive and suboptimal.

My Enlish seems to be to bad to surely understand you. But I didn' mean planet-wide, just one of my own GPX.

Remember that without support for osm provided traces or local traces, there wont be many uses (trying to avoid "useless" here;) for iD in areas without high resolution Bing support. In some areas where Bing is highly skewed it can even be destructive because it is not possible to see that Bing is skewed. The inaccuracy of Bing is a problem in itself really because it is very easy for inexperienced users to start "correcting" the map based on Bing when Bing is in fact the one that is "wrong".

@dittaeva we're definitely planning on implementing this, but not adding any features at the moment so that we can release a stable beta.

I'm confused. Is it ready yet? I can drop .gpx files and it activates the layer, but nothing is shown on the map.

As local gpx files already used to work, I opened #1436 for this.

As I understand it, the current status on this feature is that we are waiting for the Operations Working Group to provision a server which will be tasked with rendering the GPX tile layer and keeping it updated as new GPX files are uploaded. @Firefishy, is that accurate? @ericfischer will handle the software side of things.

Server has arrived (except the mounting rails) and nearly ready to go. I hope to have the hardware installed at the beginning of next week.
