export/share coordinates

Posted by james_7114737 on 11 September 2013 in English (English)


I often generate static maps (.png) for offline use, but I also need the coordinates of the bounding box for it to be useful.

Any thoughts on this issue:

Some possible ways forward for this:

  • These coordinates could just to be displayed in the web page for the generated image, so that someone generating an image will know what they are.

  • Or if the server side code and configuration still supports it, a link to the old web page could provide this desired capability with minimal fuss. Is it still available and I have missed it?

  • Or embed the coordinates in the metadata for the image file. For .png, it could be added into the Comment field.

While on the topic, the copyright should probably be included in generated images...

CU, james

I absolutely agree that they should be brought back. I was just looking for them feeling really dumb.

This is the mapper/developer oriented frontend to the OSM data. It makes no sense to remove features like this.
