I would like to use your maps in a hobby project I have and I was wondering if it is possible to remove labels from the map I have exported from yourself.

I need the background, paths, roads and buildings, but none of the labels - otherwise my map is going to be very messy.

is this possible and if so what software do I need ?

Thanks

Look at Leaflet:

Essentially, you'll need to find or create a map style that doesn't have labels in it, and create map tiles or a map image using that.

There are a few OSM style projects listed at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Lis … S_projects , and you can search gihub for things that appear to be carto styles: https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%9 … rchresults .

I don't, off the top of my head, know of an example map style that you could use.  Perhaps have a look for a "multilingual" one, since these sometimes work by not displaying the text on the main map tiles but instead as an overlay?

If you're just looking for a map image than mapybe https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Maperitive might be an option?

Re: Labels

if you are able to build  maps with mkgmap, you can use different styles consisting of files like lines,points, polygons..
if you delete in such a style the "point" file, I think that should do what you want.

Re: Labels

Try a search on https://help.openstreetmap.org for "without labels" ...

There are some hints, I think.
