I am adding a raster to a map and I like to print the raster with the map. Can I save OSM map and the raster in one SVG file.

Secondly, if I like to add 2 or more tile as a raster how can I do that?

Thanks

Currently raster embeding in SVG is not supported because of legal concerns.

Of course there is a lot of map that has expired copyrights because its age, but there a lot of content that has unclear usage status.

We believe that tracing small part of even copyrighted map will be in comply with fair use policy, but embeding entire such map will not and the map that contains such material cannot be published under CC-SA license.

For this reasons Raster maps are never stored on the ShareMap server.

But in future we can reconsider method of embeding rasters that clearly has CC or public domain license.

Is it possible to use bikemap of the openstreet map as a raster. I like to print the regular openstreet map with the hightlines available thru openbikemap.

Hi,

Because openbikemap map is published on CC-SA so there is no reason why not to include it as as permitted raster background - we will add this feature in few days and let you know.

Thanks for suggestion!
