I am writing a Android app which will use static map images, and was hoping to refer to http://OpenStreetMap.org as a source of maps. However for the maps to be of use in my app the map corner coordinates need to be known.
The old openstreetmap.org website allowed for the generated of static map images (e.g. .png). The coordinates of the map image generated were obviously displayed on the website.
The new openstreetmap.org website still allows for generation of static map images, but the coordinates of the map image are unknown.
Go to: http://www.openstreetmap.org/
Zoom in on the map
Click the Share button on the right.
Check Set Custom Dimentions
Drag box edges as desired.
Adjust the scale as is desired.
A wonderful map has been generated, but I do not know what the coordinates are. Are they elsewhere on the web page and I am not seeing it, or embedded in the image or anything?
