ESRI Supports Collaboration with OpenStreetMap Community

Esri announced that president Jack Dangermond affirmed his commitment to making map content accessible to everyone with a monetary donation to the OpenStreetMap Foundation. The OpenStreetMap Foundation's initiative, OpenStreetMap (OSM), strives to create and provide free geographic data, particularly street maps, for use worldwide. The mission of this nonprofit organization parallels Esri's efforts to empower people to share a common picture of the world through map-based information over the web.

"Publishing data as map services is one of the most valuable ways we can communicate and collaborate with each other," said Dangermond. "Maps enable an immediate understanding of patterns and relationships. The OSM Foundation and its volunteers have made geographic data available in areas of the world where it has been lacking to foster understanding of complex problems. We are happy to support their efforts."
