The different levels of OSM features, you don't have to install them all.

I want:

  • a map on a webpage, then take a look at the OpenLayers Simple Example for using OSM with the OpenLayers map UI
  • to put data on top of OpenStreetMap:
    • either create a layer which you have on your own server, e.g. points...
    • put data in to openstreetmap, and render your own map with the methods below.
  • render my own map, see Deploying your own Slippy Map, but in essence two methods
    • Using a dump of openstreetmap, imported into a postgis database and use mapnik to render
    • Using live data from openstreetmap server via API calls using osmarender
  • to edit my own map, you need The Rails Port installed locally.
