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


Is there any layer with beaches worldwide available for OSM? And if so, how can I display it on a OSM map on a web page? I have checked out the maps on openstreetmap.org and openpoimap.org, as well as the "List of OSM-based services" without finding any option to display beaches in a given coastal location.

Also, this page https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features has a lot of features listed. How can I display any of these features on a OSM map on a web page?

Thanks for any help! :)

With umap and Overpass you can highlight any feature you want. See Mappa Mercia's blog post on how to achieve this.

A umap can be included in your own website via an iframe.
