Hey,

I am sorry to ask, but I am new to OSM. I am reading and searching the web for 2 hours now to find the best way to draw a map. Basically I need to add a new layer to an existing map (I guess). I want to support my hometown by drawing allowed fishing regions to a river. There are some special thinks where you are allowed to draw from within the river, but not from the landing sides and all of that.

I hoped to find an easy solution to basically draw in different colors areas on the water and at the water borders ...

Once again, please excuse if this question is too easy, but I only found ways where I either need to code something up (end result is an export to a bigger PNG file), or where I would contribute to the OSM map (which is not requested I guess). The map itself can be public really ...

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks agin.

If the data is not in OSM and you simply want to draw the areas in question then you could for example use umap.openstreetmap.fr and use a suitable basemap from the collection available.

If the data -is- available in OSM, you could again use umap and simply add a query to get the specific data from the overpass api and display it.

As nearly always in OSM there are many many ways to skin the cat.

yes that gets pretty close to what I need really. As you said, there might be too many ways for new starters ;). Thanks for helping me
