CloudMade. Available languages — CloudMade (cloudmade.com) formerly provided a platform for software developers to build geo-enabled applications.

CloudMade

CloudMad made extensive use of OpenStreetMap data to provide mapping services. CloudMade was founded in 2007 by OSM founder Steve Coast and long-term OSM contributor, Nick Black. Nick remains with CloudMade. There is more information on key staff below. In January 2011 the company OneStepAhead was acquired as 'Cloudmade Deutschland GmbH' [1]. By 2015, CloudMade had pivoted twice, first to focus on location-based in-game advertising ("Zigi") and more recently to the "connected car" market. Former Products and Services. Traveling salesman.

Planet.osm. Planet.osm is the OpenStreetMap data in one file: all the nodes, ways and relations that make up our map.

Planet.osm

A new version is released every week. It's a big file (XML variant over 400GB uncompressed, 29GB compressed). There are also files called Extracts which contain OpenstreetMap Data for individual continents, countries, and metropolitan areas. Format The two main formats used are PBF or compressed OSM XML. API. Available languages — OpenStreetMap has an Editing API for fetching and saving raw geodata from/to the OpenStreetMap database — this is the entry page for the documentation.

API

If you just want to embed a map into a webpage, you don't want this API. Use a Web Map Framework instead. Alternatively, consider the Overpass API which provides read-only API access. REST specifications for the editing API API v0.6 - (currently used, as of April 2009)API v0.5 (no longer used as of April 2009); though this document may still be of useAPI v0.4 (no longer used as of October 2007)API v0.3 (no longer used as of May 2007) We are labeling wiki pages {{not 0.6 compatible}} if they describe something which does not, or may not work with the 0.6 API version.

osmdroid - OpenStreetMap-Tools for Android

It also includes a modular tile provider system with support for numerous online and offline tile sources and overlay support with built-in overlays for plotting icons, tracking location, and drawing shapes. osmdroid is in the progress of being migrated to GitHub. See issue 527 . Prerequisites Before you add osmdroid to your project make sure you check the Prerequisites page. I want to use osmdroid in my project You can include osmdroid using Maven or by adding a jar file to your project. I want to compile the source.

Michael Sheldon's Stuff » Local map rendering and route finding with libchamplain, Spatialite and Open Street Map. This tutorial takes you through the steps necessary to build a simple application which is capable of displaying data from OpenStreetMap and find driving routes between two locations without the need for any network services.

The final application will look something like this: And can even be used on the Nokia N900 mobile phone (running Maemo): Preparation The libraries you’ll need to install for this are: Memphis – A map renderer. Next we’ll need to acquire some OSM data to work with, for this example we’ll be using a small area around Nantwich in the UK, which can be download here. Displaying the map.

Openlayers on touch based phones.

Testing open-layers with iphone and android. « Geo-Mobile Blog

We are investigating if we can use open-layers for touch screen mobile phones, concentrating on the iphone and android platforms. This is really just an experiment to see how much we can do in the phones browser without having to resort to writing or using custom apps in objective c and java. After doing a quick google this blog by whit highlights 3 different techniques to get openlayers working with iphone. Whit helpfully describes how to extend open layers, getting it to work with touch/gesture driven phones. He posted three demos here at I tried each one with an actual iphone and the second demo seemed to give the best results for me. This is the one where touch events are directly adapted and forwarded onto existing open layers calls. Touch event to openlayers mappings… It seems to work fine even with our high resolution layer MasterMap OS layers. operlayers on iphone with OS Mastermap layer Android Unwanted Save Image Popup.
