Popular OpenStreetMap available in slovak national coordinate reference system S-JTSK

Main Author: Slovenskà Agentùra zivotnèho Prostredia
Description: SAZP decided to provide slovak SDI with popular OpenStreetMap (just extent corresponding to Slovak territory) in national refference system as publicly and freely available services providing OSM are using just Google mercator SRS (EPSG:900913). We recognized demand to combine OSM as basic map with other thematic maps in S-JTSK from several partners within slovak SDI therefore we have developed simple solution for publishing OSM from original data freely available on the net. Solution is based on PostgreSQL/PostGIS database used for OSM data storage rendered by Mapnik with slightly modified styling and publishing with Paleo server and Mapproxy. Now we are working on automation of these process to stay updated with source data from OSM project.
