Maps on demo.transformap.co display (currently) an excerpt of OpenStreetMap data. Adding a new map is easy, one has only to change some lines with a new (overpass) query for the map wished, based on one of the current maps.
But how to get the data to display into OpenStreetMap? Some data will already be there (e.g. organic stores), others have to be added. You can use the iD or JOSM editors (short description here) for adding single points. If you plan to bulk import existing data from elsewhere, there is a How-To here.
We should work on an intermediate layer, which mimics OSM API, but provides our data.
@species, could you link to appropriate documentation, please ?
Official OpenStreetMap API: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/API_v0.6
We use the Overpass API, which allows much faster queries: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API
If the Semantic Mediawiki allows geospatial queries, it would be okay for me to use that too.
