Hi All,

Newbie here, as the title suggests, how do i go about printing a map "tile" direct to paper?

Not interested at this stage on gpx files.

Cheers

I mainly use two ways:

You can also read the page OSM on Paper on the wiki.

What's your ultimate goal? If you want to print a tile, then print the tile image from the online map that has the rendering you want ( http://osm.org, http:// open.mapquest.com , http://opencyclemap.org et al ). Alternatively, try the service at http://maposmatic.org/ which allows you to generate and then print a traditional paper map for an area.

You can export an image of any area in OpenStreetMap using the Exporter service. This allows you to control the area included in your image and the zoom level. It's much easier than assembling an image from tiles yourself.

Note to viewers of this answer: After around summer 2013 the linked /export service only exports raw data (which is not what you want). The export to image formats is currently in the "share" menu on the right side of osm.org.

For a more expansive map, completely under your control you can render your own map. Probably the simplest way to do this is with Maperitive. This generates an image file potentially much bigger than a single tile which you can load into an image viewer to print.

Also check out Viking. While designed for working with GPS data, it can also be used to simply generate image files from map sources (OSM, and others).

unless you want a big map this may be sufficient: just go to www.openstreetmap.org and the print function of your browser (even works with OpenCycleMap) or take a screenshot and print it.

Viking is a useful little, free prog. that as a print function. https://sourceforge.net/projects/viking/
