Organisation Goals

Established as non-profit "Community Interest Company", OpenStreetMap United Kingdom C.I.C aims to

  • Increase the quality and quantity of data about the UK in OpenStreetMap.
  • Improve and increase the size, skills, toolsets and cohesion of the OpenStreetMap community in the United Kingdom.
  • Promote and facilitate the use of OpenStreetMap data by individuals and organisations in the United Kingdom.
  • Promote and facilitate the release by organisations in the United Kingdom of data that is suitable for use in OpenStreetMap.

The OpenStreetMap Foundation maintains a list of Local Chapters. It is expected that the UK company will eventually become a Local Chapter (i.e. be affiliated with the OpenStreetMap Foundation).
