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


I want to create a map of a local shopping High St. The requirements are:

  • Slippy (but constrained to about 2km2)
  • Zoomable from level 16 to level 20-21 to allow all shop labels & name to display clearly
  • Use OSMCarto 'standard' render
  • Each shop to be clickable to display a popup of its associated tags

Would I need to follow Switch2OSM's tile server instructions or is the an easier/simpler method? I'm going to assume the extra zoom levels will cause a bit of difficulty & discount the likes of leaflet.

If you did want to go the switch2osm route, then you'd need a version of mod_tile that supports zoom levels > 20. See this diary entry for info - there are a couple of links in there to versions of mod_tile that should work for you.

Thanks, I'll look into it.
