I must congratulate and thank you for your time/effort on this project.
Looks like a great tool.

Can I make the suggestion that you include the cycle map
(http://www.opencyclemap.org/) as a base layer of the demo site, as
contours make a great difference when planning trips.


> Hi! Today I am releasing the first version of MapBBCode JavaScript

> FluxBB (forum.osm.org engine) is not on my to do list — but maybe

> Also I am proud to present the map sharing site,
> http://share.mapbbcode.org . It showcases the library and is great for
> quick creation of maps, converting between formats and collaborative
> editing (though there is no versioning). It doesn't require any
> registration, there are no splash screens and no branding: just open,
> edit, save, share. And it works in IE8!
