OpenStreetMap ♥️ Open Data

There's two possible blockers for open data in public sector:

  • policy challenges when making geospatial information available in the open
  • technical difficulties when transferring data between formats.

Mapbox Cities is a mentorship program for cities ready to tackle hard urban problems with data-driven decision making.

With this document we're making the case for local geospatial open data fitting perfectly into OpenStreetMap, the free global geo database.

Read on to see how local governments around the globe generate value from OpenStreetMap and how the OpenStreetMap community of volunteers operates. Learn about the technicalities of GIS, OSM, and tools to use free OSM data and legal and policy intricacies to watch out for.
