Open Street Map

  • Project to create a free, editable map of the world
  • Anything on the map is editable in a *wiki* fashion
  • All data is licensed under the CC-by-SA license (may change to an shared database license (?))
  • Basic freedoms to share and copy are all available through Open Street Map: can completely reuse their database and render maps in many ways, a lot of reuse examples in embedded systems :)
