OpenStreetMap's community is diverse, passionate, and growing every day.

To learn more about the community, see the OpenStreetMap Blog , user diaries , community blogs, and the OSM Foundation website.
Over 1 million mappers work together to collect and contribute data to OpenStreetMap, many of them in the United States. We support OpenStreetMap by holding annual conferences , providing community resources , building partnerships , and by spreading the word .
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable geographic database of the world. The geodata underlying the maps is considered the primary output of the project. The creation and growth of OSM has been motivated by restrictions on use or availability of map data across much of the world, and the advent of inexpensive portable satellite navigation devices .
OpenStreetMap has an editor built right into the browser, known as iD. The iD editor comes with a short, but comprehensive tutorial for beginners. Point your browser to https://openstreetmap.org. Log in to your OSM account. Center the map somewhere on your neighborhood, zooming in to the city block-level.
Welcome to OpenStreetMap, the project that creates and distributes free geographic data for the world. We started it because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive, or unexpected ways.

An ever-growing community of map lovers created OpenStreetMap by offering a free street-level map. OpenStreetMap is a collaborative project. The geodata underlying the map is considered the primary output of the project. The creation and growth of OSM have been motivated by restrictions on the use or availability of map data across much of the world and the advent of inexpensive portable satellite navigation devices.
It was started in 2004 in the UK, out of frustration with the lack of availability of good map data that was free to use. OpenStreetMap includes data about roads, buildings, addresses, shops and businesses, points of interest, railways, trails, transit, land use and natural features, and much more. The map is created and maintained by nearly 5 million registered users and more than 1 million map contributors in every country in the world, using free tools and software.
