BBBike tile server

We run our own tile server. You can view the Berlin BBBike map like a OpenStreetMap or Google Maps: mc.bbbike.org/osm

The map is available in standard mapnik or in German mapnik style. There is also a layer for street quality (smoothness).

Map Compare

Map Compare shows you different maps from OpenStreetMap and Google side by side. Use the drop down menus over the maps to choose the map type for each map. You can move and zoom any map as usual and the other map will follow. Hold down the shift key and move the mouse to zoom in to that area.

Map Compare was written by Geofabrik. This newer version of Map Compare supports up to 52 maps on the screen and a fullscreen mode: //mc.bbbike.org/mc/

OpenStreetMap extracts service

The extract service allow you to extracts areas from the planet.osm. The maximum area size is 960,000 square km, a rectangle up to 1200km x 800km large.

planet.osm mirror

The BBBike download site offers a database dump of the OpenStreetMap Full Planet in OSM XML file format and Protocolbuffer Binary Format. Also available are extracts of more than 200 cities and regions world wide.
