Open Technology Institute
Lead Dev & Design: Jonathan Baldwin @jrbaldwin
Project Manager: Georgia Bullen @georgiamoon

TidePools is social, collaborative mapping software for wireless mesh community networks.

Getting Started

  • For Detailed installation instructions, check out the wiki:
  • You must have a local or remote server to run TidePools with: Linux, Apache, MongoDB, and PHP
  • Map Tiles can be hosted locally or linked to remotely. Red Hook map tiles were generated with OpenStreetMap data, run through TileMill, and processed into .PNG map tiles with MBTiles-extractor
  • RedHook map tiles are not included in this git repository, due to folder/file sizes. Download the map tiles here
  • These instructions will be updated with more information soon. Contact with any questions for now.
