  31. There is just this problem with OSM ... 31

  32. When proposing OSM to a customer or use it in

    a service, we take on responsibility for the data. 32
  33. Major OSM issues (in Japan) 33 • Large spread of

    data coverage and quality. • Insufficient address/POI data • Vertical and dense urban areas • Use of data beyond rendering map images Responsibility for map data bears an additional risk.
  34. Most of our clients choosing OSM do this to save

    costs or due to lack of alternatives. 34
  35. It’s often easier, not to use OSM in commercial projects.
