Application examples are often more helpful than detailed explanations. Therefore, here are some sample map definitions made available. The corresponding map can be reproduced from each definition file via the cli client.


The internal Template is often the starting point for your own maps. First you create a template and then adapt it to your own requirements. For the first steps with printmaps it is also recommended to create a map from the template. Afterwards one is familiar with the basic procedure of the map production.

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) for displaying a track. The user data are available in gpx format.

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) for displaying different user data and elements. The user data are available in gpx, kml, csv-wkt and geojson format. The graphical user elements are in svg and png format.

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) for creating a map poster. The map design "schwarzplan+" was used.

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) for the creation of a city map. The grid division (csv-wkt-format) and labeling is made via user specifications. The road reference is still to be created. The raw data for this can be determined, for example, via an Overpass API query and (in a prepared form) placed as a legend on the map.

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) for highlighting a map area by out-masking (overdrawing) the adjoining federal state polygons (in geojson format).

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) for presenting your own data (german constituencies 2017 in shape format) on a neutral (monochrome) map background.

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) for a map application at the fire brigade. The user data (hydrants, suction points) are in geojson format, the associated user icons are SVG graphics.

Creation of the map:


Smaller print formats can also be output on standard office printers.

Creation of the map:


Example (Download) of an artistically designed map. All map objects (including the background) are based on user data. The first step is to extract the user data from the OSM map data and save it in gpx format.

Other maps would be desirable - please send them in - thank you.
