See the list of available software or other possibilities of using OSM.

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.

Mapping helpers

  • 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.

Comparing maps

Comparing GPS tracks

  • GpxVComp (demo) - Web Free software tool to draw pairs of GPX tracks over a Leaflet map and compare their divergent sections. It is designed to be self hosted.

Track collectors

  • Bike Route Toaster - lets you plot tracks/routes on OSM maps and cyclemap. Includes routing on OSM maps, by car/bike/foot.

  • Gmaps Pedometer - plot routes on maps, Google Maps by default, has the option of OSM maps.
  • Cycle Maps - record routes using Gps, plot routes on maps, using OpenCycleMap.
  • GpxPod (demo) - Web Free software tool to display/explore GPX files collection over a Leaflet map with MarkerCluster plugin to keep it pretty even if there is a huge number of tracks. Also displays tracks elevation profile and tracks stats. This tool is designed to be self hosted.


A full routing application list is also available.
