Open Street Maps
Open Street Map is a cooperative project to create a free editable map. The geodata carrying the map is estimated the primary output of the project. The origin and completion of Open street maps have been motivated by limitations on the use or availability of map data across much of the world.
Hybreathe offers you the integration services of Open Street Maps. The data from OSM can be used in several ways including the creation of paper maps and electronic maps, geocoding of location and place names, and route planning.
Features of Open Street Maps
OSM introduces several features to ease its users.
Map Data Collection
Volunteers collect the Map Data from scratch implementing well-organised ground reviews using tools such as a handheld GPS unit, a notebook, a digital camera, or a voice recorder. The data is then inserted into the OpenStreetMap database. Mapathon trial events are also held by OpenStreetMap team and by non-profit corporations and local authorities to map a special area. The availability of high photography and other data from business and government references has added important causes of data for standard editing and electronic imports. Specific processes are in place to manage automated imports and avoid legal and mechanical difficulties.
Street-level image data
Several different sets of satellite picture backgrounds available to OSM editors, data from various street-level image programs are accessible as map data photo covers Bing Streetside 360° image tracks, and the public and crowdsourced Mapillary and OpenStreetCam programs, generally smartphone and other windshield-mounted camera images. Additionally, a traffic symbol data layer can be permitted; it is the output of user-submitted vision
OSM introduces route planning services to enhance and boost its customer's mapping experience.
