[OSM-talk] How best to create a "single point of interest" online map with OSM data?

Overall CartoDB is working out fairly well.  Here's an example:
https://brycenesbitt.cartodb.com/viz/8385ca6a-49a1-11e4-ad81-0e4fddd5de28/public_map

I've post processed ways into nodes as suggested in this thread.
The cartoDB server side rendering is a big plus.  Though it does still get
laggy: try Europe.
The popup formatting is not as nice as uMap.  Both umap and CartoDB lag
Fusion Tables here.
Coloring dots according to an attribute is also easy in Fusion Tables, but
more awkward here.
The CartoDB example, unlike with uMap, is not live data.

This map also shows quite graphically how many toilets are missing from OSM
:-)!
