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

I want to create an image (it doesn't have to be high resolution) that uses the contour map data of the Cycle Map layer, and includes my personal track data from a KML or GPX file.

I thought I could download an OSM file of the region and then use some Mac app to view the OSM data as a map, and then import my KML/GPX data to show my track on top of the map ... and then just do a screen grab of the result (that's the resolution level that would do for the moment). However, I can't seem to find an app that will allow me to do this easily. I tried JOSM (not having used it before), but when I imported the .osm file that I had downloaded from the Cycle Map layer on openstreetmap.org it didn't show the contours nor look as nice.

Is there a Mac app that will take a .osm file and show it in the style of the Cycle Map layer, and which will allow me to import a KML or GPX track on top?

Thanks in advance.

I tried myOSM, which shows the maps fine but it doesn't seem to import a GPX file despite having this as a menu function.

You can use GPS Visualizer with the opencyclemap as a background and you can import your gpx track/s and you can share it with others.
You can also upload and create gpx tracks using the Opencyclemap using Gpsies
There may be other suitable choices here

Thank you. GPS Visualiser looks like it will do the trick. :-)

A possible alternative is GPS Prune, it will run on Win PCs and some macs you will need to install Java for it to run. alt text

Garmin Basecamp ( which is free ) will display an OSM on Garmin downloaded map (also free) and your GPX trace. It runs on Windows and Macs. Installing Basecamp and getting a map installed will take more time than Prune and Java method in my other answer but if you have a Garmin Gps it has some advantages. Note you don't have to have a Garmin device to use it.
