Web services

Switch to OSM (from google, bing, whatever)

Create your own map / create layers on map

  • - the granddaddy of personal OSM maps
  • - for techies: draw your own geoJSON and manipulate it
  • inkata - similar service using a business-oriented environment (and a bit less user friendly gui)

Web libraries, JS

  • Leaflet JS - the library OSM main site uses now
  • GEO5 - a newborn HTML5 compatible library
  • OpenLayers - the original, general purpose mapping library

guides, docs (external)

indoor mapping

interesting usage


  • OpenSource Routing Machine - car fastest (chooses 1 min faster for +50km route; good travel time estimation)
  • OpenROuteService - car, walk,bike; can avoid areas; accessibility analysis (from Germany) (chooses 1 min faster for +50km route; bad travel time estimation)
  • YOURS - car, bike, hgv and all kinds, but routes bike on motorways etc... (travel time estimation is bogus)
  • BikeRouter project - bike of various kinds (safe, trekking, flat, ...)
  • MapQuest open does routing for car
  • OSMU routing (car, hgv, goods, motor, bike, pedestrian; optimal, shortest; waypoints)
  • GraphHopper - demo, java based fast and flexible routing engine
