I have put quite a bit of work into the area I am now. I have been trying to produce a map with all the POIs I have put on a local village (bars, cafes, banks etc). Mapnik will show most of them, some with names some without. I have had a look on cloudmade but that doesn't seem to show many POIs at all. Is there a way/web site I can show all the POIs?

Openstreetbrowser looks interesting, but doesn't seem to show anything at zoom > 11 (e.g. Is coverage international?

OpenStreetBrowser is not available anymore:

How many does the Osmarender layer on the main site show? That's normally good at showing common POIs that aren't rendered by the Mapnik layer.

It seems to be showing virtually all of them on Osmarender - when it hardly showed any when I wrote the post. Mapnik, in comparison has gone from showing most of them to none.

Osmarender takes a bit longer to render new stuff than mapnik does.

Note the Mapnik tile rendering server is down for maintenance this weekend. So its currently serving tiles from a backup server, which may be a bit out of date. Wait a few days, then most of the POI you added should appear. See

(for the avoidance of confusion) whilst the Osmarender layer existed back in 2011, it no longer does - so this answer isn't relevant any more.

Hi RobChafer, have you tried this one ?
