  1. OpenStreetMap

  2. ! What Is It ! A Freely Editable Dataset of

    the Globe ! Emphasis on Local Knowledge ! A Diverse Community of Members: GIS, IT, Humanitarian ! Open Data: Fork the Planet
  3. ! What @pdxmele Says It Isn’t ! A rendered map

    that uses particular cartography, whether for web or paper. ! Proprietary—anyone can use it for free as long as they provide proper credit ! Something static—it changes and grows all the time ! Controlled by an authority—it is driven and maintained by a large community of contributors and data consumers
