Welcome to OpenStreetMap, the project that creates and provides free geographic data and mapping to anyone who wants it. 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.
The map Use the main online map or some of the many other services.
Contributing Use the Beginners' guide to find out how you can improve the map content; alternatively report an error using Notes, help the developers create better tools, donate some money or offer data for other people to import.
Mapping projects Find out about the many Mapping projects; from accessibility (for sight and mobility impaired people) to winter sports and for countries/territories from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.
Map Features The Map Features page will show you how to tag everything from an Acacia tree to a zoological garden.
Help To get answers when things aren't working.
About Find out about how the project works and its many Contributors.
