Apache Baremaps is a toolkit and a set of infrastructure components for creating, publishing, and operating online maps. It provides a data pipeline enabling developers to build maps with different data sources with live reload capabilities. It provides other services commonly used in online maps, such as location search and IP to location.

How to Build with Maven

This guide describes the basics of compiling Baremaps from source. In order to run Apache Baremaps, you first need to install Java 17 or a later version. SDKMAN provides a convenient Command Line Interface (CLI) to install and upgrade Java. We also suggest you use the most recent version of Maven to compile (at least 3.x.x).

Linux or OSX

To start you can run the command mvn clean package from the root folder of the Baremaps project. Upon successful compilation you should see something similar to the following output in your terminal.

[INFO] Building zip: /path-to-project/baremaps/baremaps-cli/target/baremaps.zip
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] Reactor Summary for baremaps 0.7.1-SNAPSHOT:
[INFO] 
[INFO] baremaps ........................................... SUCCESS [  4.172 s]
[INFO] baremaps-core ...................................... SUCCESS [ 59.018 s]
[INFO] baremaps-benchmark ................................. SUCCESS [  1.775 s]
[INFO] baremaps-ogcapi .................................... SUCCESS [  9.796 s]
[INFO] baremaps-server .................................... SUCCESS [  0.787 s]
[INFO] baremaps-cli ....................................... SUCCESS [ 20.687 s]
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is important to note the first line in the output above that notes where the location of the baremaps.zip file resides. Referencing the location of the baremaps.zip file, you can run the following to unzip and place Baremaps into your PATH

$ unzip /path-to-project/baremaps/baremaps-cli/target/baremaps.zip
$ export PATH=$PATH:`pwd`/baremaps/bin

Executing the baremaps command should now result in an output similar to the following:

Usage: baremaps [COMMAND]
A toolkit for producing vector tiles.
Commands:
  import  Import OpenStreetMap data in the Postgresql database.
  update  Update OpenStreetMap data in the Postgresql database.
  export  Export vector tiles from the Postgresql database.
  serve   Serve vector tiles from the the Postgresql database.

From here, head into Installing PostGIS if you plan to work with vector tiles.

If you want to work on Geocoding or IP to location, head directly into the related examples.

Windows

If you are using Windows, you will need to use mvnw.cmd instead of ./mvnw and use set instead of export to set the environment variable.
