Outside OpenStreetMap, there are many other providers of open-source datasets, such as cities, countries, and NGOs. Since 2020, the Meta Maps team have taken these datasets that have compatible licenses, conflated them with OSM data, and output any contained features that are missing compared to OSM. These missing features are then combined and displayed on Meta Maps to increase the feature coverage and enrich feature details. Recently, we started a collaboration with Esri to surface these datasets to Rapid using a workflow designed and supported by Esri so that they can be easily added to OpenStreetMap by anyone.
This talk will go over the conflation details and the workflow of adding data to Rapid
