OpenStreetMap Questions

Does anyone know how to do the following or is anyone able to point me to some documentation that can:

I am wanting to create a restaurant map of a relatively small area in ArcMap using the OpenStreetMap basemap (added using the Add Data feature). Is this possible? I just want to be able to create points from the addresses of the restaurants and label them, then provide a pdf of that map to some out of towers, nothin crazy, but it I’m not even sure it’s possible using OSM. I’m in ArcMap 10.2, any relatively quick way to do this?

Thanks! I need this information for my new project about quality casinos in Canada - here is the link - visit and review it.

This could be also a good excuse to start using QGIS, it would be a good choice for many reasons! :slight_smile:
