OpenStreetMap – The Democratization of Mapping
Traditionally maps have been built by professionals and sold to or licensed to the masses. If the map contained incorrect data, or didn’t cover information you needed, you were out of luck. OpenStreetMap (OSM) is different. Thousands of volunteers have come together from around the world to create a free map that anyone can use for free, and to which anyone can contribute. What Wikipedia is to encyclopedias, OSM is to maps. Why do we do it? How can you join this revolution?
