Taplow-100.png A small area centered on Taplow in South Buckinghamshire
Taplow-300.png A larger-scale view of Taplow in South Buckinghamshire

The Taplow maps were produced by a slightly modified version of Osmarender. The only manual tweaks were to make the road names readable on a couple of very short roads. Area data is partly from Landsat and partly from local knowledge.

Would it be possible to frame the map to create a bolder, stronger image (highlighting a focal point or significant features)? Ojw 22:28, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Tehran-university-persian.png OpenStreetMap is an international project, and street names can be accepted in multiple languages. This map is of the area surrounding Sharif University of Technology in Tehran – the Iran/Tagging rules page shows how to edit maps in this area.
There are a few rendering problems here (mostly about labels), and I think this could be beautified quite a bit. I'm working on that. Roozbeh 09:13, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

North London

Northlondon slippymap.png North London, as seen on the new Slippy map..
The area has been updated quite a lot since this set of slippy map tiles were created. Looks even more complete nowadays. Welshie 16:37, 23 December 2006 (UTC)
Quite a bit of wooded areas and footpaths added and considerably more roads infilled in Enfield. Would really benefit from being one zoom level in too. Steve8 23:58, 1 Jan 2007
