Newbie Q's about paths, licensing and development

We've built proprietary paths for a travel application in the Google environment. Partner sites want to license static maps with these paths from us and we don't believe using Google's map tiles are an option. An example static map can be viewed here: … GEM105.jpg. We were referred to this site as a possible solution and if anyone can point us in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

We'd like to use Osmarender to load our path data and export multiple png files for partner sites to display. Are there developers who have done similar work before using Osmarender? Is this possible/easy? Can we make use of OSM data for this purpose and would we retain copyright over the finished maps ourselves? Thanks in advance.

Re: Newbie Q's about paths, licensing and development

If that's the resolution of you paths, that is you are zoomed out so much that you have more than one country, then you have several options other than  Openstreetmap. You can use Osmarender to do this, but I don't think it's a good idea, it's built to render streetlevel maps..

Try the openlayers API, which is a gmap api look alike, with some kind of free world map and take screenshots.

Sorry for not helping but this really isn't in the scope of a streetmap..
