RocketData is a service that helps business owners add correct info about their businesses to maps and navigation software, social networks etc. They are known for low quality paid mapping in repeated violation of OpenStreetMap rule. See Organised Editing/ for partial listing.


The import process goes through the following stages:

  1. Adding data by owners in the user account / Loading data from an import file provided by the business owner
  2. Manual data verification by company employees
  3. Automatic mapping of owner-assigned categories to OSM categories
  4. Company search through Overpass
  5. Comparing our data with OSM data
  6. Uploading data to cf_audit for verification
  7. Exporting data via JOSM
