FAQ
Beginner How do I edit the map? How do I use OSM in a blog?
Data journalists and researchers I’m using Google tools for data analysis, what is the workflow if I use OSM for mapping output? What tools are available to use OSM for visualisation?
Public services Can we mix Ordnance Survey and OSM data? How can we use OSM to improve services and engage the public in co-production of public services?
Start-up I have some data I don’t want to release under an open licence. Can I use it with OSM data and mapping?
