The Static Maps API helps with embedding map images into any website, and it has a wide range of markers and configuration options.
Simple one-line example: http://dev.openstreetmap.org/~pafciu17/?module=map&bbox=69.2,-47.2,71,-50&width=400&height=250
For example: a map with transparent polygons:
and ones with markers
I think the scale bar rocks too.
You can get the code here:
OpenStreetMap had 6 projects this year with GSOC:
- Preprocessor to add altitude info to OSM data
- Android navigation application using OSM data
- Profile based traffic routing
- OSM direction too for visually impaired
- Automatic street sign detection and reading
- Static Maps API
I really enjoyed being a mentor, and was very fortunate to have a very capable student to work with! Cheers Pawel!

Спасибо! Буду теперь заходить на этот блог почаще! 🙂
Excellent post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I’m impressed! Very useful info specifically the final section 🙂 I maintain such information much. I was looking for this certain information for a long time. Thank you and good luck.
Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little
lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
Any tips? Cheers!
