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


I want to draw a circle around random point with a radius.
I saw this link Draw OpenStreetMap
and wanted to know if there is another examples where I can define the radius of a point.
In addition if I can save it as layer.
I would like to get some advice how to do that.

If you do not stick to openlayers, maybe try http://leafletjs.com ...

If I am not wrong, it also has a drawing feature, or not?

I found that Leaflet is a good framework for drawing, you can find it at Leaflet.Draw

Thanks, that was useful; I've used leaflet demo at http://leaflet.github.io/Leaflet.draw/docs/examples/full.html as a quick way to triangualate place on OSM by knowing how far the location is from multiple other places (i.e. where circles cross)
