[Talk-GB] invisible

I don't know one about waterways, but for walking routes it is worth looking
at Lonvia's hiking map (http://osm.lonvia.de/world_hiking.html) - I use this

I have had a bit of a go at learning how to create overlays for other things
- I started with supermarkets (http://maps.webhop.net/supermarkets), and
power stations (http://maps.webhop.net/power).   There is another one (
http://maps.webhop.net/topo/) that combines a few overlays and some
contours.   It would be very easy to convert these to generate waterways
overlays if you want to - I think they have an 'about' page.

Note that these are served off my computer at home, so they load rather
slowly - the upload speed on my broadband connection is not very good!

For point data rather than images, it might be worth doing it a different
way and using javascript to plot the points, but these simple images seem to
work - they just take up a lot of disk space if you render them to high zoom

Let me know if you need any help.
