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


I can't find a way to display only places with specific tags on the map at www.openstreetmap.org. I tagged some places as vegan friendly, and am trying to only see those on the map. But the map just displays everything. How do I disable the display of, say, schools, and churches and other stuff?

There is no way how to make www.openstreetmap.org show only vegan restaurants.

If you are looking for a web service then maybe OpenStreetBrowser works for you; it has a way to make custom queries.

You could also render your own map, then you can decide what gets shown and what not. Maperitive is one software that lets you do that, but there are loads of others; see e.g. the answers to How do I render my own maps for my web site? or Can I make a customized map just for me?
