comment How would I go from a set of points representing routes to a set of map tiles for online consumption?
The other questions/answers were not what I was looking for either. The question is about creating map tiles. The answer I found was TileMill (which uses Mapnik).

This question is about generating static tiles not vector layers like the possible duplicate that was flagged, gis.stackexchange.com/questions/23993/…

Won't this only create a pop-up bubble, not an actual context menu?

comment What are alternatives to ArcGIS for Desktop and Google Earth for these requirements?
FWIW, I've loaded a collection of PolyLines in QGIS from a KML file before. So, it's not limited to just points. Also, I'm not sure what base map you're trying to use but there's a good QGIS plugin which gives you all of the popular web maps as base maps (i.e. Google Maps, Yahoo, Bing, etc.)

I will have hundreds of routes that need to be displayed simultaneously and the map will need to be viewed on many different devices. Imagine if you are plotting all of the highways and interstates in the U.S. I don't think drawing them on the client-side would be the best solution, would it?

comment Import polylines and polygons into QGIS from CSV
@TimFowler Please let us know what you ended up doing. I am in a similar situation, but I don't think the import option above will work for me. Thanks!

Thanks, but I'm looking to combine something into the actual tiles, not draw on top.

I think my question is different since I don't want to generate the route in open layers. I want my routes to be plotted on rasterized tiles and then served to a front end like open layers.

comment How would I draw and visualize custom maps based on OSM data?
I've read that you can run the EC2 image on your own machine using VirtualBox.
