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


i'm making some custom maps with JOSM and piclayer (get the framework form openstreemap and i build more accurate path into that area using a background image(jpg made with autocad) added with piclayer.

Now i would like to save the whole thing as one osm file in order to run it on a local OSM server

but I can't merge both layers (image+osm) on JOSM in order to have both image and osm in one osm file.

Well basically the question is how to use his own background image on OSM?

Well, using OSM data with a certain backround image is not a matter of OSM itself.

You need a framework like Leaflet or OpenLayers, thus you can publish rendered OSM data on a webbrowser maybe combined with an image.

Have a look at their websites, there are some examples how to use these frameworks for special purposes.
