Project Description


I'm looking for someone to implement and load the Nominatim geocoder for OpenStreetMaps with the most recent North America data set.


[1] A fully functioning Nominatim geocoder, including special phrases and wiki entries, installed on a linux-based virtual machine.

- I would prefer to receive a virtual machine (in .vdmk format) that I can load on a local machine running VirtualBox; however, if it's more practical, access to a bare VM (e.g., turnkey-lapp-13.0-wheezy-amd64) on the target machine can be provided and the contractor will responsible for upgrading it to spec (namely, postgres and postgis upgrades).

- Physical Machine: 32GB RAM, Intel Core i7-4770 (octacore @ 3.4 GHz)

- Host OS: Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)

- Virtual Machine: 28GB RAM, 6(?) processors

- Guest OS: Debian Wheezy (64-bit) => I am not wed to this

- Application software:

- apache [port 80]

- php5

- postgresql 9.3 (64-bit) [port 5432]

- postgis 2.1 (64-bit)

- osmosis

- Nominatim 2.2

- webmin

- ssh [port 22]

- ftp [port 23]

[2] Postgres Tuning: All necessary tuning to the postgresql RDMBS configuration shall be made so as to optimize the VM's use of the Guest OS resources described above.

[3] Guest OS Tuning: A recommendation shall be provided concerning the number of processors used by the virtual machine.

[4] Website: The site will be operated without a domain on a local network, and addressable only by its IP address ([url removed, login to view])

[5] OSM Updates: The installation should be configured to search for updated OSM extracts on a weekly basis.

[6] Required documentation:

[a] Identities & passwords for system and database users: root, postgres, nominatim

[b] URLs of Nominatim website and API endpoints: e.g., [url removed, login to view]

[c] Instructions on how to change the URL of the website to another IP address
