Printing map books

Posted by slashme on 16 October 2010 in English (English)

I made 5 25-page mapbooks of the Alexandra Township (poor area in Johannesburg) from Walking-papers and gave them to the geography teacher of a local school. This morning at 10:00 SAST (08:00 UTC) I'll be talking to some of his pupils and helping them get going with adding information.

I want to give them a nice-looking map book when we're done. What's the most professional-looking, readable way to render OSM data for printing?

Either walking papers or maposmatic.org

I was going to try using OSM Atlas
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM-Atlas
but never got around to it. That links back to OSM on Paper
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_on_Paper
which seems to list a number of different options to try (including the two suggested in the comment above).
