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

I want to export a map of a larger area - not just a city. Mapz.com offer exactly this and it is very easy to use. The only problem is they charge 1,000 for one map.

How can I get a map of an area of 100 km2 as a vector. It just needs to be of roads and outlines of green areas etc. Not the super technical maps when zooming in to a city.

Hi, if you need minor streets, paths ect. for vector maps the files could be very large .. there is a user-defined vector map service - also with greens (Classic Style) - also for larger area maps
