OpenStreetMap is a project to create a free editable map of the world. The project is motivated by restrictions on use or availability of map information across much of the world, and has been facilitated by relatively inexpensive global positioning system devices. Unlike proprietary software, the data are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike licenses. As the name of the project implies, the OpenStreetMap project makes street attribute data available. But the OpenStreetMap project also collects and has available other geographic data attributes, such as buildings, land use, natural features, places, railways, and waterways.
