Today we are launching the 2013
OpenStreetMap Data Report, a
beautiful and deep exploration of OpenStreetMap’s incredible momentum, its data and contributors.
This report comes in time for State of the Map US 2013, the largest
OpenStreetMap gathering to date, kicking off today in San Francisco.
We’ve looked back on the project’s 10 years in the making, the skyrocket
growth to over 1 million users, 21 million miles, and 78 million buildings,
and tried for the first time to tell the story of OpenStreetMap as a whole
in data. We have traced through OpenStreetMap’s 67,629,368 roads and tallied up the
incredible sum of 21 million miles - that’s 40 years of driving at 60 miles per hour.
What’s striking is OpenStreetMap’s growing global coverage and freshness
of data. Working with the data artist Eric Fischer we
have created these renderings of OpenStreetMap data, showing roads colored by currentness.
