i read OSM map and cluster data of OSM. Now, I would like to draw my output, which is simply a colored circle surround some cooridnates back on to the map to check my data. Could anyone tell me how to do that or any suggestion will be appreciated very much.

Thank you! Jantong S.

Are you looking for something to display this data in a web browser, like Leaflet, or something for larger datasets, like Mapnik and/or TileMill?

How to use Mapnik? If I want to display the map with other functions just like google map, such as zoom, what can i do ?

Hi jantong and tataT9, For your tasks Openlayers framework would be suitable. Link for the docs :

Thank you for your advice. I want to use the data of OSM offline, but Openlayers need to connect to the tile server. Is there a project can do this for windows, Just like mapsforge for android?

A certain collection of possibilities are listet at but it can be outdated.

Also have a look at and investigate the tables there about offline data display or tile display.
