It has been a long time in the making, but at last, we are happy to announce that a SOSM hosted uMap instance is available: umap.osm.ch .
uMap allows you to create hosted map configurations that contain base maps, data sources and manual annotations.
An example of what can be done with very little effort: the “Swiss style” map with car sharing locations queried from the Overpass API.
While the data displayed in the example is static, the same can be done with a direct query of the OverPass API or similar sources. Data that is limited to Switzerland can be retrieved from the SOSM Overpass service, and to make that a bit easier we now have a local Overpass Turbo instance.
To create your own map on umap.osm.ch you simply need an account on www.openstreetmap.org and allow umap.osm.ch access to it.
A special thank you to Sarah for setting up the system for us and to Yohan Boniface for developing uMap.
