Has anyone used any of the following heat-map api/scripts for OpenStreetMap:

  1. Bjoern Hoehrmann's OpenLayers Heatmap Layer: http://www.websitedev.de/temp/openlayers-heatmap-layer.html
  2. Heatmap by Patrick Wied: http://www.patrick-wied.at/static/heatmapjs/

I am looking for a free heatmap api that can be used in a production environment (a few thousand hits per day), so, if any one has used any of the above in a high visitor number environment, please share your experiences; otherwise please let me know if you are aware of any other free scripts for OSM heatmap.

@ShahriarNK, I also need to create a heatmap based on OSM. I would like to build this on C# VS2013. If you know some APIs that may help do this, please let me know. I would really appreciate.

What I can recommend is leaflet-heat, an easy-to-use Leaflet-plugin that provides fast and nice-looking heatmaps.

For completeness: There is also https://github.com/sunng87/heatcanvas (which has openlayers and leaflet support). But unfortunately, I can't really recommend it, as it tends to be slow and often produces non-satisfying results. It may depend on your use case, though.

I know http://yosmhm.neis-one.org/ , and they use a heatmap. Maybe you could ask them?
