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

Hi there, I am trying to find a way to map 100 addresses on the openstreetmap. I have list of 100 addresses on excel file and i want to locate them on openstreetmap. Is there API to get this done?

Apart from this I want to calculate driving distance between each of these locations and create a distance matrix of 100X100.

Please advise me how this could be achieved?

Please do not ask two questions in one.

You can use umap: umap.openstreetmap.fr for your first task. You will need to geocode the addresses first if they do not already have coordinate associated with them. You can do the later with nominatim see: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim

OSRM has support for generating distance matrices see http://project-osrm.org/ and https://github.com/Project-OSRM/osrm-backend/wiki/Server-api

Note: if you are using the public servers providing the above (instead of running them yourselve) you MUST conform to the respective acceptable use policies: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Acceptable_Use_Policy and https://github.com/Project-OSRM/osrm-backend/wiki/Api-usage-policy
