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


Recently, i have mapped out the buildings and roads, tagged the building and created a routing network for pedestrian and driveway. Now i would like to export out the map to a website or create an iphone application so that when u search for two points, it will show the shortest route to get to the destination. Any idea how should i go about it?

This is too unclear for anyone to give a helpful answer. How big a section of the map are you talking about? Do you have any programming skills, and if so, in what languages? Is there a reason you've you mentioned JOSM, which is an editing program?

You can browse the list of mobile applications in the wiki and see, which one does what you want (and add functionality if you miss it and if the source is available): http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Software/Mobile You might also find useful information here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Routing#Routing_software and here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Routing#Libraries.2FDevelopment-Tools
