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

I was wondering if there was a renderer that was specially made — or particularly fitted — for on-site surveying.

By this, I mean a map that contains as much information as possible about what is in the database already, but as compactly as possible so taking notes on a printed version is easy.

I would say a sharp contrast, black and white map using understandable descriptive icons for objects would be what I am looking for.

This is a great tool! I like the black and white renderer, makes it easy to add things, but I wish more POIs were visible on it. The same one with the ability to select what we want to be shown on the map would be ideal!
