Slippy map for mobile devices

OpenTouchMap is a slippy map for mobile devices. https://www.opentouchmap.org

What it does

Well, it basically shows OpenStreetMap-Tiles. It reacts to gestures like pinch, drag or double-tab. Using the geolocation-API one can view his position. And you can search too.

How it does that

OpenTouchMap uses Leaflet for map-interaction and Nominatim for the search.

How to use it

  • zoom by double-tabing or pinching (or with the + and - icons
  • search by tapping on the search icon
  • jump to your position with a link on the meta-view ("always on startup" selectable there)
  • use url-parameters ('lat', 'lon' and 'zoom') for directly jumping to a spot:
http://www.opentouchmap.org/?lat=52.205&lon=0.119444&zoom=14 (Cambridge)
http://www.opentouchmap.org/?lat=53.55&lon=9.99&zoom=12 (Hamburg)
http://www.opentouchmap.org/?marker=48.53,9.05 (one marker)
  • use url-parameter 'q' for directly searching for a place:
http://opentouchmap.org/?q=York
