Good morning, I am developing a new game and I need an online map where I can upload my "Game Map" (it's a City) to use instead of the normal world map. Is this possible in some way? Just to make an example, I need something like this, but with MY image as map:

Thanks for your help, Giulio.

No. You won't upload your image to anything - you'd simply use the gdal2tiles utility or some similar map tiling program to split your image into a series of "tiles", and then you can host that on any webspace and use OpenLayers or Leaflet to display it. (gdal2tiles will even generate a small .html map page with OpenLayers for you.)

This question is not OpenStreetMap related.

If you do not have a large image of your map already, but wish to use OSM technology to draw one, check out
