[OSM-talk] Exporting calibrated maps from OSM

Hello all,

It would seem useful to be able to export calibrated maps from OSM,
perhaps via the export tab. This would make it quick and easy for
someone to actually use OSM in their device and software of choice.

A calibration file could be downloaded together with image files
(JPEG, PNG), perhaps wrapping image and calibration files together in
a .zip file.

This is slightly complicated by the wide range of calibration file
formats. There are a few conversion programs around which suggests
these should all be fairly interchangeable.

I've created a wiki page to list the formats I've come across and
develop ideas: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Exporting_calibrated_maps

Unfortunately I'm not a programmer but just thought I'd put this 'on paper'

cheers,
LT
