Just a quick update on the pre-processing of map tile coverage for the UK – there are currently 52,815 map tiles on file, which constitutes just under 77% of a level 4 to level 9 run. This has taken roughly 5 days.
Once this is complete, I also need to do level 10 to finish it off, which will take approximately 9 times longer (hopefully less, since each square will contain 9x less data).
So I’m looking at around 11th June for the main UK pre-load to be complete. Hopefully under a Labour Government by then…
Of course, looking at the image above, we can see that there are sections of Scotland and Eire that will need to be processed additionally, and the tip of Cornwall by the looks of it (possibly a Channel Island or two for good measure), but essentially 11th June is a good estimate.
Once that is done, no more delays server-side. It’ll be all about getting the Android App finished.
