Locana extends OpenStreetMap support
Locana, an international leader in spatial technology, is now a member of OpenStreetMap US, a nonprofit organization that helps support and grow the OpenStreetMap (OSM) project.
Conceived in 2004, OpenStreetMap is a free, open geographic database updated and maintained by a community of volunteers via collaboration. OSM broadens access to high-quality data, lowers the cost of harnessing location intelligence, and makes it possible for more organizations to take advantage of insights from location data. To date, OSM has been widely used by NGOs, humanitarian groups, and the scientific research community as a data provider for turn-by-turn navigation, disaster and pandemic response, education, and more. Many private organizations are starting to use OSM as well.
