I display OpenStreetMap with some SLD styles.

my OSM

This map is not the same OSM.

I want that this map is equal OSM map.

I use GeoServer 2.3.5

Does anyone display OpenStreetMap through MapServer, ArcGIS for Server or Geoserver? - here are some ideas.

Update: The map may be not relevant OSM map. But it must be beautiful.

  • Some updates on this?

Perhaps you are referring to this one?

Since you know exactly what you want the map to look like, I would suggest starting with either the linked SLD from this post or the one from @tmcw. Then you can edit it until the map visualization fits your needs.

You could even post the results to github and share them with the community.


openstreetmap-sld gets close to the original style, but nothing will match exactly since OSM is not styled with SLD.

    Thanks, but this sld styles are very old. Is there new sld (not relevant Mapnik styles) which gives beatiful map.
