Hi all!

I am new to OSM and GIS in general.

I am trying to create labels for sattelite images I have to do building/road segmentation. I've now figured out how to do this with osmnx (phew!), now that I think about it a little more, I was wondering if there might be an easier (better, cleaner) way creating it with open gis? Or would you know of some other way?

What I did with osmnx:

graph = ox.graph.graph_from_bbox(north, south, east, west)
geometries = ox.geometries.geometries_from_bbox(north, south, east, west, tags = {'building':True, 'amenity':True, 'landuse':['commercial', 'residential', 'industrial', 'mixed']})

this creates a map for my corresponding sattelite image (with bbox north south east west)

Edit: this is an example of what I've been able to cook up for now: image thanks in advance for any tips,

Can you try explaining that again, perhaps in your native language? I've no idea what you are trying to do.

@SomeoneElse Hi, apologies, English sort of is my first language but I am bad at all of them (:-S), I have a reading disability, I know my writing can be incoherent sometimes.

I have images, I want the corresponding map from openstreetmap with buildings, roads etc. I have figured out how to do this with osmnx, I'll edit above and add a code snippet to illustrate.

Is this for a static image or for a slippy map? What output formats do you want? (Basically, what are you actually hoping to get out of this?)

Are you using your own aerial imagery or another provider's?

@InsertUser Hi, thanks, it's a static image, our (non-profits) own aerial imagery. I am attaching what I did with matplotlib above
