Using Open Street Maps

Posted by JAGDNC on 31 July 2014 in English (English)

So, I know that Open Street Maps are usable to software developers and for embedding into websites, but I would like to use a map of a local park where I do loads of volunteer work to create a hard-copy map sign for the park. This sign will also include a QR code for updates to the map as features in the park change.

Is it possible to export a map to jpeg or other graphic file and use that graphic as described above?

Thanks

Simplest option is to go to the openstreetmap.org home page, then click on the share button (the arrow symbol, on the bar to the right of the map). Then that lets you select an area, and export as PNG or JPG etc.

Or some more options here, which might help: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_on_Paper

Also note to comply with the OpenStreetMap licence, you should give attribution. So include something like "© OpenStreetMap contributors" on your printed map. Details here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright
