Awesome OpenStreetMap Awesome

A curated list of awesome OpenStreetMap-projects.

OpenStreetMap is an open map being used by millions of devices and users every day. It can both be edited and used by anyone free of charge.

This list contains projects using OpenStreetMap data for creative purposes, as well as projects dedicated to improving OpenStreetMap.

We also have a list of unmaintained projects. If you are a developer, consider adopting one!



Web Editors

Native Editors


Web Tools

Mobile Tools

  • OSMTracker - Offline GPS tracking tool for recording GPX tracks. (Android / Wiki)

Native Tools

  • Baremaps - Open source pipeline for producing Mapbox vector tiles from OpenStreetMap with Postgis and Java. (Source Code)

Changeset Tools

Web Services

  • Osm Change Tiles - Map highlighting recent edits per tile. Provides RSS feeds for watching changes in custom bounding boxes.
  • Analytic OSM Tracker1 - Tracker for changesets in your region.
  • Suspicious OSM Changesets - Find suspicious OSM changesets.
  • Changeset Text Search - Filter OSM changesets by comment.
  • Latest Changeset Discussions - Show latest discussions on OSM changesets.
  • latest-changes - Visualize latest OSM changesets within a certain geographic boundary. Includes a simple vandalism checker. (Source Code)
  • OSM Inspector - The OSM Inspector (alias OSMI) is a web based debugging tool for advanced OpenStreetMap users offered by Geofabrik. On a map you can see several themed views, each with several layers, showing specific details of the OSM data, often with highlighted errors.
  • Nominatim QA - The Nominatim Data Analyser is a QA tool used to scan the nominatim database and extract suspect data from it. These data are then presented to mappers through a visual interface so that they can correct them directly.

Tasking Managers

Tasking Managers are websites which assign small tasks to individual users to work towards a common goal.

This section is a great place to start if you want to get into improving OpenStreetMap.
