Hello everyone,

Mentioned this on the dev list already, but this probably has general 
interest: I am starting to develop an alternative OSM map renderer, which 
highlights different types of segment (road, path etc) as well as showing 
place names and points of interest. It also shows contours derived from NASA 
SRTM height data.

This can be found at 


and at the moment covers the whole of the UK.

The places which show up the best at the moment (from where I've looked so 
far, anyhow) are Southampton, Weybridge, the area of north London at the 
southern end of the M1 and (for countryside data) the New Forest and 
Petersfield/Haslemere area.

Note that it's highly imperfect at the moment (in particular, street names are 
not shown).
