Customize POI maps for your neighbourhood

I created a new web frontend to the MapOSMatic rendering backend that supports putting POI markers on a slippy map and then renders a map with markers set on the map and a customized index sidebar that contains given marker titles and icons.

There’s also preliminary documentation and, of course, a GitHub repository for it.

As the project was originally meant for creating neighbourhood plans for refugee shelters in Germany it currently has a fixed “Refugees welcome” Icon in the map title bar along with the OSM icon. The additional icon will become configurable soon, including the option to upload own SVG icon files.

The web interface currently looks like this:

and the rendered PDF result like this (PNG screenshot, click for actual PDF):
