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


Any application using a renderer and opening a .OSM file to browse a city while offline ?

I guess rendering is a costly operation, and can take a lot of diskspace, but is there any existing solution ?

I can browse an OSM file with JOSM, but it's not very practical...

JOSM (newest versions) have switched their default style to use MapCSS - perhaps one of the applications listed on that wiki page would suit your needs?

If you want to see a map and not the raw XML you need to render the OSM data. But there are different solutions for different needs. It depends on what your real requirements are (is it really a requirement to start based off a .osm file?).
