MAPCAT is an OpenStreetMap-based world map portal launched in 2017, with the aim of offering easy-to-use tools for the OSM community even on-the-go, and thus opening up the world of OSM to new users as well.

Key functions:

Routing for cars, bicycles and pedestrians and map editing. Currently in beta version, but new features and worldwide launch are on the way.

Key features to highlight:

- cycle planner with elevation profile and road type indication;

- POI management: 5 POI types can be visualized at a time, Wikipedia POI info and pictures integrated, advanced POI search;

- i18n: local language and writing systems handling.

Tailor-made business services, e.g. routing, visualization, embedding and search, and a Unity3d game module for games and apps are coming soon
