This is the official page for OpenStreetMap U.S., a 501(c)(3) charity advocating and supporting OpenStreetMap in the United States. OpenStreetMap U.S. is not a Local Chapter. Some of the United States OSM community resources are found on the OpenStreetMap U.S. website.
We strive to support the OpenStreetMap project in the United States through fostering awareness, ensuring broad availability of data, continuous quality improvement, and an active community.
