How to render my own tiles?

Why do you want to do such thing you may ask? Because I need to be able to make thousands of queries per day and I can imagine you guys won’t be happy if I directly hit your servers every time.

Now, I know how to download the data, how to import it in a database and how to make an API, but I have no idea how to render a map or draw items on it.

Basically I want to run my own geolocalization service without being tied to a monthly fee, if that’s possible.

PS: I found this repo: GitHub - openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website: The Rails application that powers OpenStreetMap but I don’t get along with rails/postgre, I’m a LEMP developer

Please enlighten me, Thanks in advance!
