From a research perspective, OpenStreetMap is deservedly attracting a lot of attention from universities and similar institutions, and from academic scholars in 'geomatics', 'neogeography', 'volunteered geo-information'. 'digital cartography', 'participatory geoinformatics' etc. OpenStreetMap is fascinating and vast in terms of scale and variety of the data we offer, the technology we build, and uses we find for the data. But most of all, we are a fascinating and vast community. Whether you're interested in studying the community itself, or working with the datasets, we hope you'll become a part of it and share your knowledge, extend the map, improve existing technologies, and explore new horizons.


To learn more about the project itself, the wiki offers a wealth of (sometimes a little disorganised) information. Get a quick overview at About. Dive into some technical details of current Development or if you prefer, take a look at some Books about OpenStreetMap. Resources for scientific processing and analysis of OSM data are reviewed at OSM Scientific Tools.

Greetings from our community

OpenStreetMap has a vibrant and open community, and we are happy about everyone who takes an interest in us.

There's no reason to study OSM from inside an ivory tower like you would study a colony of ants. You can come out and talk to us, tell us what you're up to, even discuss your methods or preliminary results, and you will generally have full cooperation from the community. As a community, we're sometimes a little sad if the first we hear of an academic project is when the paper is graded or published - maybe we could have offered some advice, or put you in touch with someone else who does similar work. At the conference SotM-EU 2011, Muki Haklay gave a talk with advice to academics interested in OSM and the video is available online.

Ideas for students


OpenStreetMap has several open problems which would make good student projects. These are items that need researching and "longer-term" issues which could be worked on by students as a project separate from the core open source development progress happening within the community. Further projects might be on the Google Summer of Code.

By geography

Below a list of universities and scientific institutions that are involved by different projects. This list is on scientific work only, please paste project specific content on a separate page to keep it short and readable. This is for OSM related GIS projects only!
