OpenStreetMap US

How up-to-date is the OSM road network? In 2020, Lyft ran a comprehensive, ground-truth-based evaluation of the quality of key tags of the OpenStreetMap road network in 30 major North American cities. After three months, thousands of miles driven, much skilled work from our data curation team, and statistical processing, we’re excited to report our novel findings. In this presentation, we overview the study results and explain the methodology, which could be used to evaluate other tags, geographies, and quality characteristics.
