GNOME version ---

Maps currently use MapQuest as a tile server. We have heard that the ToS might
change soon and we might not be able to use it as freely as we have had for

It would be nice to be able to use and re-point tiles.gnome.org in instances
like this. And also provide a seamless transition to if and when we have our
own tile server.

At the moment we use two different tile-servers from MapQuest.

MapQuest Open Aerial:


MapQuest OSM (Street):

Maybe we could have https://tiles.gnome.org/aerial point to
https://otile1.mqcdn.com/tiles/1.0.0/sat/ and https://tiles.gnome.org/street
point to https://otile1.mqcdn.com/tiles/1.0.0/osm/ ?

Any opinions from the cc people?
