I am in need of a complete road map for an entire city that I can blow up into a large 4' x 8' printed image. I am a new user of OSM and not sure how to accomplish this or if it is even possible. I have only been able to see sections and not an overall image. Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks, Michael

Our existing free-to-use infrastructure is not suitable for generating such images. You'll have to either

  • use a third-party service - there's the excellent and free MapOsMatic but you can also buy services from the providers listed on our Wiki.
  • render the image yourself from raw data, for example by using the Maperitive software or the osm2pgsql/PostGIS/Nominatim toolchain; type "printing" in the search box above to read a couple of answers that deal with this.
