> I am a student at Durham University, working on a software
> development project to create a geocaching game.
> I have been using Google Static Maps API, to download tiles, for my
> PDA application, however it isn't quite flexible/accurate enough for
> me to stitch together the tiles, so I have been looking into
> OpenStreetMap, which looks ideal.
> However, one of the constraints of the project is we must use java
> for both the desktop and PDA applications, I therefore can't use the
> python scripts for downloading the tiles.
> I was wondering if your Export feature on http://www.openstreetmap.org/
> , uses a url structure like... http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/staticmaps/
> . I know its a big ask, if such a structure exists, would could you
> please provide details?
> Thank you very much for your time reading this, and I hope
> OpenStreetMap continues to be a success.
> Kindest Regards,
