Add and update businesses in OpenStreetMap

"OpenStreetMap My Business" (short OSMyBiz) is a webapp where businesses - like hotels, restaurants, bars and shops - can enter and manage their information (e.g. address (housenumber, street), opening hours, phone no, and website) in OpenStreetMap in an easy way. It's similar to Onosm.org but contains more functions which are designed to be user friendly. The result is a Note except when a new entry is made with a predefined category.


Why OpenStreetMap?

  • OpenStreetMap data can - within the free license - be used freely and free of charge.
  • OpenStreetMap is very detailed and with 1001 POI classes very extensive.
  • In OpenStreetMap errors can be improved directly.
  • OpenStreetMap is basically "Privacy Preserving".
  • OpenStreetMap is the largest community of volunteers in this field and now on par or better than Google Maps, government data and other alternatives.
  • More about the comparison with see Comparison Google services – OSM.
