OpenStreetMap powers map data on hundreds of web sites, mobile apps, and hardware devices.OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, railway stations, and much more, all over the world.

Local Knowledge

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.

Community Driven

OpenStreetMap's community is diverse, passionate, and growing every day. Our contributors include enthusiast mappers, GIS professionals, engineers running the OSM servers, humanitarians mapping disaster-affected areas, and many more.

Open Data

OpenStreetMap is open data: you are free to use it for any purpose as long as you credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors. If you alter or build upon the data in certain ways, you may distribute the result only under the same licence.


Software for viewing maps

The most obvious software to employ to make use of the data provided by the OpenStreetMap project, is to view it in any ordinary web browser via Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

2. GNOME Maps:

It is a graphical front-end written in JavaScript and introduced in GNOME 3.10. So far it provides a mechanism to find the user's location with the help of GeoClue and it can deliver a list as answer to queries.

3. Marble:

4. FoxtrotGPS:
