This article tries to collect and list online applications making use of the OSM data. Feel free to add applications you stumble upon or that you developed yourself.
This page tries to collect more or less mature applications that are user-oriented.
As the list grows we will try to group the applications according to their approaches and/or intentions.
- OpenStreetBugs is a platform that lets you mark errors or missing details in the map and also lets you mark those errors as solved when that has been accomplished.
- Keep right! (Data Consistency Checks for OSM) shows up to 100 errors in the centre of any given map area inside of Europe with a rather good indication of the type of error and hints to resolve them.
- Keep right! is also providing data consistency checks for Australia & New Zealand.
- ITO OSM Mapper provides a way to follow changes in a defined area. It requires separate registration.
- OSM Inspector is another page that provides data quality information and has different overlays.
- Transparent Map Comparison - Compare transparent overlays of OSM maps to other maps or satellite imagery from yahoo! and Google
- Another transparent map comparison - Compare transparent overlays of OSM maps to satellite imagery from Google, Google maps labels and other data
- Map Compare - Side by side compare of different maps provides by Geofabrik.de
