Welcome to OpenStreetMap, the project that creates and distributes free geographic data for the world. 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.

Developers Improve or use OpenStreetMap.
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 Get answers when things aren't working.
About Find out about how the project works and its many Contributors.
Licensing We have changed the license from CC BY-SA to the Open Database License (ODbL).
