OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetMap.org (OSM) creates and provides free geographic data, such as street maps, to anyone who wants them. because most maps considered "free" actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, which hold back their use in creative, productive, or unexpected ways.
    OpenStreet Map launched in the fall of 2004 in London. Since then the organization has grown to more than 200,000 volunteer members worldwide. Almost daily there are meetings and new projects initiated my OSM members. In January of 2010, OSM started a special project to provide critical mapping data to support the emergency efforts following the earthquake in Haiti, a project that continues today.
    For more information, please visit the OSM Press Portal (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Portal:Press#Introduction).
