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


I would like to create some maps showing itineraries / routes followed on various trips we have made in the past, and would like to include these in my web site. At the moment I'm using Google Maps - here is an example: http://www.aaltenvoogd.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=41&Itemid=60.

How can I do this using OpenStreetMaps? I'm not a developer, just a simpleton looking to use the maps by clicking and adding points and routes.

Hope someone can help!

Many thanks in advance. :-)

For displaying routes you can use OpenLayers and a simple GPX file. This is really easy as you can see on an example in our wiki. There are also lots of other examples you might be interested in.
