Maybe a stupid question, but I really can't find out how to add text to a map using uMap. For instance I would like to place a marker, called NameX (for instance). So when you open the map you will see the marker with the name directly appearing. I also would like to add text to kml or gpx files I import, so I know which routes this are, without first having to click on the route.

Is this possible ?

Thanks, Robert

Answer: Add a marker give it a title and text. Then go to the Layer properties of the layer your marker belongs to and under advanced option (Erweiterte Eigenschaften) you'll find an option always show title.

Have fun with uMap! I love it!

The easiest was to produce a map with custom annotation is to use an uMap instance, for example http://umap.openstreetmap.fr

@Roby44: so your question is about uMap, right? Please add it to the title and tags.

See the article about uMap in the OSM wiki ...

there is a section called "Feedback and Help" ... try to aks there, e.g. in the IRC channel
