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


Is it possible to download (archive, API, or whatever) the icon data set (if it is available under an Open Source license of course) which is actually used on https://www.openstreetmap.org as we can see some examples here:

I'd like to use some on a custom map.

Look at https://github.com/openstreetmap/map-icons or http://osm-icons.org. Licence should be PD-style or CC0 in both cases.
