Hello together,

my goal is to combine an image (scanned analogue map) of a limited area with openstreet map. The resulting online map should have all OSM features and the adjusted image in the background.

Is there any web project that allows me to do this? It must include the adjustment of image and OSM and the generation of the resulting interactive map.

Thank in advance, Arnd

Geothings Map Warper lets you upload your own image, add control points, then see the resulting image warped and tiled and layered over an OpenStreetMap background.

If you want to run such a process on your own machine the command line GDAL tools may be the best option. I believe this geothings web app actually makes calls to GDAL behind the scenes too.

...but I'm sure there are other alternatives to GDAL. Maybe this question on gis.stackexchange: Rubber sheeting in GRASS or QGIS will help. Let us know what solution you come up with!
