OpenStreetMap

I’m currently in the process of migrating my Google Maps code to OpenStreetMap using the Leaflet JavaScript library. Besides being, as the name suggests, open, it is a lot easier and gives me some nice features and higher control. WIP screenshot:

Not having satellite view nor StreetView is not really an issue for the game. I’m also using a plugin for caching the map tiles and reduce data transfer. The idea is for the game to be highly “offline-friendly”. An internet connection will only be required when visiting new places (all places are new when playing for the first time, so this will require an internet connection as well) or when sharing photos.
