I am very impressed by the development of openstreetmap. I am thankful for all the hardworking members and your valuable contribution and time to make this a success and FREE.
Well, I am not a programmer but I am working with a programmer to help me develop a social site for my classmates. I have looked at the google map, and very interested in one of the sample applications as shown through the link below;
What I want(as an administrator of the site) to be able to place symbols/and popup screens on locations where members are, so when the user click on a listed name(as shown on the above link) it places a symbol on their location with the popup window. Google map could be used but their map does not give detail street level of all regions examples street level maps in most African cities. So since people like you devoting your time to give much detail/accurate maps I would prefer to use the openstreet map for the application with credits to openstreetmap.
Can someone give me step by step application in implementing this(I’m not talking about the code(although I would welcome it), but word explanation of steps to make this happen). I will give this imformation to my friend who is doing the programming (java, and the rest),
Thanks for all the good work.
