I use OpenStreetMap along with OSMand on my mobile device.

I have personal points of interest on my map that I do not want to upload to the community. Currently I use Favorites in OSMand to save them.

Now I want to make a print of that map with my Favorites. How can I bring my Favorites to be displayed in OpenStreetMap on my PC?

You can install QGIS 1.8.0, and the Openlayers plugin which serves you with an Openstreetmap background.

You can import your data as text delimited layer, or GPX points layer, and print them on top of the Openstreetmap background.

If your data is in lat/long degrees, the Coordinate system for your layer should be EPSG:4326 WGS 84. The project CRS has to be EPSG:3857 Google Mercator. With "On-the-fly-projection" activated in Settings->Project Settings, both layers should align.

The open-source software viking http://sourceforge.net/projects/viking/ does a similar job, maybe easier for a newbie. QLandkarte GT http://www.qlandkarte.org/ is similar to it.

  • Viking works for me. Awesome!
