OpenStreetMap Promotional Leaflets
This repository contains the source files for an OSM flyer (in English) that was originally created by Frederik Ramm firstname.lastname@example.org and contributors from the talk-de list in January 2008, and subsequently updated, translated, re-updated and re-translated over the years. This version was made by Andy Allan email@example.com
All contents are in the public domain except for those derived from OSM which are CC BY-SA, and except for non-OSM logos.
The flyer is designed for DIN A7 as the final size (105mm high and 74mm wide), with 8 pages in a zig-zag ("Leporello") fold, and full colour printing.
The flyer was made with Inkscape; osmflyer1.pdf, osmflyer1-2.pdf and osmflyer2.pdf are the front (2 options) and reverse side.
Inkscape-r15371: These most recent SVG/PDF files have been updated under Inkscape v0.92.1 r15371
Inkscape-r9886: The original SVG files were created under Inkscape v0.48.3.1 r9886
osmflyer.pdf: r15371 combo of osmflyer1.pdf + osmflyer2.pdf (original style)
alternate.pdf: r15371 combo of osmflyer1-2.pdf + osmflyer2.pdf
PDFs: page size: A7 Portrait; 105mm high x 296mm wide; 3mm bleed; printshop-ready
SVGs: Inkscape stores it’s work within SVG v1.2 files; those files are NOT web-compatible
XCF: GIMP image (to produce the preview JPEG), obtained from a r15371 combo of osmflyer1.svg.png + osmflyer1-2.svg.png; the preview contains page + bleed crop-marks; whilst page-creases are indicated with vertical dotted lines

- 2018-12-30: (AK) the main work was to update the r9886 SVGs for Inkscape r15371 (see https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/alexkemp/diary/47345).
- 2019-01-30: (AK) corrected padding errors discovered after printing the updated PDFs (see https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/alexkemp/diary/47536) + added sub-dirs + added replacement photos
- 2019-02-05: (AK) added preview-front-options.jpg to give a preview of 2 versions of the leaflet front (see https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/alexkemp/diary/47653)
Some notes in case you want to re-create something yourself:
berlin-background.pngis basically a 4-year-old Osmarender rendering of Berlin, using a standard stylesheet but with all captions removed, and the resulting PNG file processed with the Gimp roughly like this:
First convert to grayscale, then use
colors->curvesto narrow down contrast, then convert back to RGB, then use
colors->colorifyto give it a nice hue.
The cover globe image was made with Marble, the technique is roughly outlined here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Marble
