Extract a Map

MapXtract is a really neat tool to style a map and then download it as a png, svg or GeoJSON. The MapExtract editor uses OpenStreetMap data so should work for any location in the world.

To use MapXtract you just need to pan and zoom the map to the location that you want for a map. A location search function is missing from MapXtract. This means that you need to find the location that you require for yourself on the map.

Once you have panned the map to the required location you can style the colors of map features using an easy to use color picker tool. MapXtract allows you to color roads, water features, natural features, buildings, the background layer and an admin layer.

Once you've picked your location and chosen your map colors you're done.  All you need to do now is choose to download your map as a png, svg of GeoJson file.
