I previously wrote about how to find playgrounds on OpenStreetMap with a tool called Overpass Turbo. Using Open Street Maps is starting to catch up with me. It still has quite a while to go, to replace Apple Maps for in-car use and Google Maps for bike route planning, but for custom routes it shows itself. Another nice tool I have come across in my “mapping adventure” is uMap. uMap allows one to, create information layers on top of a OpenStreetMap-background map. Such information layers can be points, lines or polygons.
uMap seems to offer a lot of customization possibilities, and I am not even remotely done with exploring it, so I may update this post, as I get smarter on it :)
