I don't understand how to do this, do I get an embed code somehow?

If you want to add your business details to OpenStreetMap, the easiest way to do it is with the dedicated site at

Note that OpenStreetMap is a geographical directory of the world, not a business directory, so we can only list objective facts. So "we are a cafe, our name is Fred's Cafe, and we are located on High Street, Burnley" is good, but "we sell the best coffee in Burnley" isn't.

This section of the OSM wiki may also be helpful if you want to embed a map in an external site.

Hi everyone! I have just used the above mentioned to add my business, Realtycinema ( but I had certain difficulties with correct placement of the object on the map. I only could indicate a nearby location - a public school, which could only be found by the address search. And I could not move the rectangle with the mark to show the exact location.
