Hi im making a simple forum for a university project however i would like the inclusion of open street maps, with the inclusion of open street map I would also like for my end users to be able to add points of interest into the maps displayed on my site for other users to see a way to arrange a contact point if you will, i would then like to enable routing from a user to this point displayed on the map and I’m confused on how to go about it really. I have a decent knowledge in webpage creation but never tried anything with map data before but after searching would it be right to assume that I would need.
- a private server dedicated to running OSM
- some form of overlay software to allow for user interaction
if anybody has any idea or suggestions on how to go about this I would be massively appreciative thanks in advance.
