For an art project, I would like to generate some maps of neighborhoods in various cities, from OpenStreetMap, I guess. I would like to keep this as simple and cheap as possible.
- These maps should be very simple. Ideally, they should be black and white outlines of streets and shore boundaries, with no text, and no other layers.
- They should be in vector format, not raster, i.e. SVG.
- I don’t mind paying money for this, but I don’t ever seeing myself ever needing more than 15–20 maps, so purchasing an expensive software product or subscription is out of the question.
- Assume that I want to learn as little as possible about GIS systems in order to accomplish this. Relatedly, please keep the amount of jargon in your answers to a minimum.
