Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I've been trying to export a pdf map in the MapQuest Open view but when I export it I get the standard map.

I'm probably doing something simple wrong. Would appreciate some help?

Regards, Seán

As far as I know the export feature will exclusively use the OSM's mapnik stylesheet for rendering png. If you want to get an image of an area with OpenMapQuest style, you may use bigmap or maposmatic.

Thanks for your help.

In BigMap or Maposmatic I don't see the options for OpenMapQuest but I'll have a pay around and see if I can find something that suits.

First, it's better to "add new comment" instead adding new answers when you want to answer to another answer. Order of answers is not permanent.

For maposmatic, sorry, it's in the dev version (from last week): http://dev.maposmatic.org/new/

For Bigmap, you can play with the url parameters. You can start from this url: http://openstreetmap.gryph.de/bigmap.cgi?xmin=26&xmax=37&ymin=16&ymax=33&zoom=6&scale=64&baseurl=http%3A%2F%2Fotile4.mqcdn.com%2Ftiles%2F1.0.0%2Fosm%2F!z%2F!x%2F!y.png
