I'm not even sure what maps as images means. If a map is described in
XML (say, as an svg file), would that file be a "map as an image"?
Let's assume any of the individually copyrightable graphics (like
omitted or placed in a different file. Just the lines
(dashed/dotted/etc), the filled areas (colors or patterns), and the
text were included.
Is OSM a project to make maps, or a project to collect factual data
about the world?
