Freemap is a custom OSM renderer which aims to provide output from OSM data with particular emphasis on countryside users and walkers. Due to resource limitations it is currently restricted to England and Wales.

Its author is Nick Whitelegg. OSM data, stored in a standard PostGIS database, and Ordnance Survey LandForm PANORAMA contours are rendered using Kothic JS.

Coverage

England and Wales

Availability

Due to requests from outside the OSM community, Freemap is now back, but as a pure renderer rather than a complete application with bells and whistles. It is now hoped to focus on improving the rendering itself. See here.
