How to collaborate

Basics activities

The StreetComplete app (in this image) indicates what content are incomplete in Lima city, for example.

If you are new to OpenStreetMap, don't worry. You are welcome to add some information about your neighborhood, add a business or name a street. Learn how the editing system works from the article guide for beginners. You must have your OSM account, click to register if you haven't.

  • The best way to participate in a few steps, even if you don't have enough time to do it, is to use the Android app StreetComplete. Some tips you can consult in this special section.
  • You can also edit with applications with the native editor. Any popular questions are available at Frequently Asked Questions (in spanish).

Avanced activities

  • If you use a gps and have traces in Peru that you want to share with the project, you can upload your traces for free. Don't forget to tag the word Peru so that your tracks are added directly with this tag to the project, here you can see the tracks in Peru.
  • To get them to work with your neighborhood, use the Field Papers so you can add those details that only you know. If you have any questions, ask with us in the mail list.
  • For third-party content. External sources and data such as free licensed maps and documents can be found in Sources and data. If you are an expert in importing open data, you can consult ES:Perú/Importación.
  • For quality control, you consult Quality control with Osmose
  • To complement participation in cities, we have information pages on Arequipa and the urban region Lima-Callao.
  • For more information visit the correspondient page.


For those who frequently use OpenStreetmap or do not have clear information detailing in the city, we recommend following some suggestions, drawn by the community or in institutions ES:Perú/Convenciones (English edition).
