Inquiry for using OSM on a website with some changes

Adam rash
Good afternoon,


I apologize in advance if this question is derived from a misunderstanding of the usage of OSM on my part or if this is the incorrect contact channel for such a question, I just want to inquire on a particular use-case.

I am emailing to ask if a certain project would be possible and acceptable regarding the use of OSM on a business website that is being created. Within this website, the goal would be to have an interactable map where logged-in users can navigate and create custom markers with custom fields that tie to objects within the website's database. For example, clicking on the map to place a marker, with the fields/attributes showing accordingly on the side for editing, and being able to characterize the marker by pulling in attributes from an object within a database to fill in the information. Also, I want to know if pulling in the OSM would allow for this kind of use while only storing the data on our particular server/database instead of flooding the current OSM site with the custom markers.

In short, I am requesting the possibility of pulling in the OSM API for use on a production website, with the ability to customize/characterize markers and tie them to objects in a database, and having it only be intractable with logged in users on that specific site without reflecting on the main OSM site, much like creating a private or local Google Map.

Thank you in advance for any information you are able to provide.

Hi

I think what you want to do is simply an overlay. Have an OSM based map
as a background, and display your data on top. That is very common, have
a look at umap.openstreetmap.fr for an example.
You will need the background map: either you host it yourself or you get
it as a service. See switch2osm.org The OSM API is never involved.
