OpenStreetMap Promotional Leaflets
This repository contains the source files for an OSM flyer (in English) that was originally created by Frederik Ramm email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.svg and osmflyer2.svg are the front and reverse side.
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
