I need to quickly determine if OpenStreetMap will allow me to show a map with locations marked (e.g. pin drops) based on a list of supplied addresses and then zoom the map so all marked locations are visible.

Are there any examples that show how to do this?

are you speaking of a web map? Sure, that is possible (with some JS coding by you), geocode the addresses and then display the resulting coordinates as markers with your map display software. Telling the map display software to display a specific area should be possible too.

You can find examples e.g. here: http://leafletjs.com/examples.html . Also see how-can-i-display-a-map-with-multiple-markers. Maybe somebody else knows glued-together working examples …

Thank you, I'll research it. I need to have a solution by Friday.
