Is it possible to define a sector linked to an existing icon? Example add a sector icon on a cell tower to show where the cell is pointing (direction 0 to 360 degrees) If so, is it possible to rotate an icon?

OpenSeaMap does it for lights.

I've seen maps of CCTV with sectors as well.

Best regards.

Thank for your tips :-) Next question, is it possibly to add OpenSeaMap:s icons and functions into OpenStreetMap? - They seems to use same map view.

The OpenSeaMap raster tile layer is designed as an overlay, to add data upon another basemap, usually openstreetmap-carto.

Managing different layers is easy, with Leaflet for exemple.

You could probably re-use their software to generate an overlay of your design. Probably not trivial though.

Hi again

I found something called "Mapnik" - a tool to add and change layers in OpenStreetMap. Is this a way forward?
