Raspberry PI Captive access point

Cameron performed his talk on setting up a Raspberry PI a festival for mapping and information.

What I'd really like for next year's mark 3 version (I may need some help to do this, not sure):

  • Proper tile rendering using mapnik - so I can upload some changes to the raspberry pi's hosted GIS database and the appropriate changes will be rendered on the pi. - And support for pre-rendering a whole bunch of files on my desktop computer beforehand.
  • A weather forecast page that can scrape before being deployed somewhere offline for a week. - Openweathermap supports giving you a weather forecast given some coordinates in xml / json, both formats I know little about how to parse.
  • Some way to grab a feed from and render it as a layer on my leaflet based map (with something to specify to the user when that data was last updated).
  • Implement a tilt servo mechanism so the camera can be remotely adjusted up and down.
  • Mesh networking support would also be nice, and some way of syncing forum posts and GIS data across similarly equipped raspberry pis.
