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

I am beginner. I would like to display few GPS coordinates on OSM. For example:

50.1373102630358 14.4652336835861
50.1368770323325 14.4654268026352
50.1369939362421 14.4662743806839
50.1373240163272 14.4661241769791

How can I do it?

If he meant "when I click on a point on the map I would like to be shown that point's coordinates just as it happens in the updated google maps" I would like the same and don't know how to do it.

If you right click permalink tab on the map page and then copy link address and then paste it you will get something like this. I have substituted your first pair of co-ords and it seems to work. http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=50.1373102630358&lon=%2014.4652336835861&zoom=17&layers=M

also if you click on edit (potlach2) and sign in then click on options and one tick box offers to show mouse pointer lat log which may be of use

Andy, how to display a marker in openstreetmap using those coordinates or url (http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=50.1373102630358&lon=%2014.4652336835861&zoom=17&layers=M). I want to view it with a marker.

Tick the box for marker. see added jpeg

You can use uMap for that. You can create a new map, and then you can import data as CSV, so for your example:


NB: I've added a third column to give a "description" to markers.

@cendonuser If you select the direction arrows next to the search bar and drag the green marker to the osm the coords will appear in the 'from' box. You can drag the marker around the map to find other coords.

If you paste a pair of the coordinates into the osm, 50.1373102630358, 14.4652336835861 you get
location and if you mouse-over the cords it found (under Results from Internal) a marker will show you where it is. I think you can only do one set at a time.

You mean that you want to display a marker for these coordinates? If so, please read this other question.
