intetgration of OpenStreetmap-Data (POI: retrieval-function

Postby say_hello » 2020-08-11 13:39

dear community,

today i have a special question - regarding openStreetmap:

the question: can we run and apply the data from the Open data collaboration in wordpress?

What do you think about this!?

in other words: can we add the data from in a iframe - so that we can display it in wordpress!?

note: the officials of the project wrote to me: The data are all published under ODBL and are hosted in OpenStreetMap and as such they are freely shareable with acknowledgement to OSM (and a nice mention about healthsites would be great). If you do not expect to be placing high load on the server it is probably no issue, if you expect to be a high traffic site we would like to discuss how you can support the overhead of the traffic on our infrastructure.

background: i work for an organization that contributes to volunteering opportunities especially in the field of education and medicine (hospital, clinic etc. etx). peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Volunteerism - in general - is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the the engagement of a single volunteer. Volunteerism benefits both society at large and - besides that- the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation. At the moment we re thinking about doing some first steps with the great dataset of healthsites.
– regarding healthsites this is the most important link:

Means there is an API to get the data from with a personal API key …: note: with this - i should be able to put the data on a website

e.g. to a mapping plugins of wordpress. there some of them working with openStreetmap - see for example:
they are equipped with a whole lot of top notch and very advanced features so we do not need to manually embedded map.

In addition to single or multiple locations, interactive map plugins provide:
– were able to add – Custom icons and markers
– Animations
– Filter and search options
– Clusterization
– Zooming and panning
– pinning the map to a block
– using the data that comes shipped with the map.

question: can we run and apply the data from the Open data collaboration in wordpress

note: a iframe and the integratin of this page would be thinkable:

or the other method - to gather the data of the hospitals in the world - and only the POI - the point of interest -nothing more!

perhaps i can gather the data via

. osmconvert ( cf. )

. osmfilter ( cf. )

this would reduce the dataset to a minimum...:

-and aferwards store the data set in a plugin like participands database ( )

Note: i only need to have the data of the hospitals - nothing more -only the POIs of the hospitals...

have a great time!!

This: ... -the-data/
Says the OS is MX Linux, not Debian.

Well, since it is offtopic, it's ok, but actually none of this appears to even be Operating System specific, it is more of a "Webdesign" thing,... Or check with OpenStreetmap, to find out what is acceptable,..
@OP, you should try to word this better and avoid so many links, especially if you are posting the same on various forums, it could easily be mistaken as spam, and get you in trouble. We have another guy at SFS that use to work with OPenstreetmaps, but I guess that is another topic.
have a great time!!

Yes I will try to do that, the same you have great time and a good day.

With all those active links to the health site the opening post looks like spam to me.
