This map image was created by Osmarender way back in 2007. It was a Featured_Images/2007 (August).

Historical note: At the time we were still debating whether it was a good idea to have coastline data in OpenStreetMap! Images like this, helped settle the argument, showing how the coastline in cities like Bergen really characterises the city, and is core to what a map database needs to offer. We no longer have a scaling issue when it comes to storing worldwide coastlines in the database, however coastlines do remain one of the trickier types of data to handle for mappers and data users.
