How can I change a map’s “view”? For example, all I want are the boundaries of a specific zip code in the US (say, 19072). I’ve seen the display that I want on a site with the URL https://www.unitedstateszipcodes.org/ but I can’t figure out how they got it to display that way.
Any help will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
OSM is just a database. What kind of map (or other application) you create from the data is up to you. The map on OSM.org (often referred as the “Standard map”) is just an example what OSM data can be used for. If you need other data displayed on a map you have to create your own.
Take a look at our http://wiki.openstreetmap.org for further information. If you have questions post them here or use one of the mailing-lists.
