Vicmap API has been retired - any options?

Ewen Hill
Good evening,
  The vicmap API has been retired. Has anyone contacted DELWP about a
replacement for JOSM use yet or have a useable agreed alternative?


/This Vicmap API service (i.e. api.maps.vic.gov.au) has been replaced.
Please contact support.vicmapapi[AT]delwp.vic.gov.au if you are interested
in accessing the upgraded Vicmap API./

The vicmap API isn't under an open license so it was never supposed to be used to derive data from for OSM.

The vicmap data which you download, is allowed to be used, as it is CC BY 4.0 with the OSM waiver.

I agree that having a background map we can load into editors makes it easier to add names etc. than needing to load the data.

So I suggest we setup an OSM-AU Mapbox account, load in the vicmap data and then get those maps into the editors as background layers. I'm happy to help out with this.

What kinds of information have you been using from Vicmap?
