User Story

As a PRTG User, I want "open street map" (OSM) as additional map Provider

Details of User Story

1)Sensors such as access points can be positioned exactly within buildings. This helps the support team enormously if they can run directly to the appropriate location in case of a problem. PRTG would be the central tool for the team from order to position finding

2) OSM often has a better representation, especially for the purpose of monitoring, see e.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/48.42231/9.95498. (please copy full link) The other map providers almost all aim mainly at (vehicle) navigation, at building level there is a lot going on.

3) In OSM you can have indoor maps! https://openlevelup.net/?l=2#18/48.42254/9.95362 (please copy full link)

4) You can insert your own items (which should be visible to the public), which can also be useful in PRTG, e.g. see http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/F3M

Acceptance criteria

Adding OSM functionality to the other map providers
