could you please explain that a bit more? In a map? which map? what is "zoom 2m"?

i mean, zoom level is 20 and i want it to be closer to the ground. 2 meter from the ground.

sorry, I do not understand that. Which zoom level do you see here https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/50.12074/8.84479 ? Do you mean this map? Do you want this map to just be in a high zoom level (which is not available for this map)?

I understand "2m from the ground" that you want somehow a view from something as you are hovering 2m above the ground. That does not make sense for a map. A traditional map has a scale, where e.g. 1cm on the map represents 50m in the real world.

If you want aerial imagery (photo's) that is taken 2 meters above the ground, that is not available. That imagery is at best taken from a plane and those fly much higher.

I mean for 3D map, sorry if I wasn't clear. https://osmbuildings.org/

it is still not clear. Please describe in more than one sentence what you want to do and what you need for it.

ok, here is osm 3d with buildings. I want to zoom more than 20, let say 22 or to be specific to 2m above ground, closer camera to ground: https://osmbuildings.org/?lat=45.79836&lon=15.96269

Currently the maximum zoomlevel seems to be 22. You need to ask the operator of that service if they could implement this. Osmbuildings.org ist not the same as openstreetmap.org - they just use our data to provide their service/map.

Note that there are other OSM-based services for 3d maps: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/List_of_OSM-based_services#3D . Maybe you find something more suitable, or build your own (nearly all offer free materials – this is "free" as in freedom).
