could you please explain your usecase a bit more? Do you want to know how to display downloaded tiles locally in a html/JS slippy map? Or does Offline_Openstreetmap help?

thanks for comment. Now, i am using google maps for display my customer on the map, it great, but must be online. SO, i read that Openstreetmap can use in offline mode. So i need a map that can show marker but no needed internet connection. Can you help me to achive this? may be some link of example or your experiment ..

aseerel4c26 already provided a link to the wiki documentation. The way you can use OSM maps offline is depending on your application (browser or not), technology and environment (hand device, PC). Provide more explanations about your app or, even better, contact the developers mailing list at (needs registration here
