About OpenStreetMap US
This is the US chapter of OpenStreetMap, the free, open-source map
of the world created by volunteers all over the globe.
We support the OpenStreetMap project in the United States
through education, fostering awareness, ensuring broad
availability of data, continuous quality improvement, and an
OpenStreetMap gives ordinary citizens the power and the tools to create a
high-quality feature-rich map of their country, their states, their
communities and their neighborhoods.
Because the map data is free, anyone can use it to create maps for
themselves, their businesses, their schools, their local governments or
any other purpose they wish.
More than that, OpenStreetMap US is an organization anyone can join to connect
with other mappers or institutional data users. Our members range from mapping
enthusiasts who want to contribute their knowledge of their local communities
to geodata experts who bring technical skills to the creation of the map
and professional users who leverage OpenStreetMap data commercially.
