Welcome to OpenStreetMap, the project that creates and distributes free geographic data for the world. We started it because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive, or unexpected ways.

Cincinnati Bike Maps 04.jpg
This month, Nate Wessel published a full-color cycle map of Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, based on OpenStreetMap data. A print run of 9,000 is being distributed locally. Unlike many urban cycle maps, which highlight a curated selection of "preferred" routes for cyclists, the Cincinnati Bike Map indicates road conditions for all roads.
