OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. Rather than the map itself, the data generated by the project is considered its primary output.
OpenStreetMap powers map data on thousands of web sites, mobile apps, and hardware devices.
OpenStreetMap emphasizes local knowledge. Contributors use aerial imagery, GPS devices, and low-tech field maps to verify that OSM is accurate and up to date.
OpenStreetMap is open data: you are free to use it for any purpose as long as you credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors.
OpenStreetMap’s community is diverse, passionate, and growing every day.The contributors include enthusiast mappers, GIS professionals, engineers running the OSM servers, humanitarians mapping disaster-affected areas, and many more.
OpenStreetMap has forever changed the way we look at geo-data and the technology surrounding it. This change in perspective has helped foster a growing number of geo-enabled companies.
