What is OpenStreetMap?

See OpenStreetMap (OSM) Wiki. The statistics showing the continuous growth of OSM are just stunning.

What's a Mapping Party?

How to map an address?
  • To be a contributor to OpenStreetMap, firstly register to be an OSM user here
  • Addresses can be tagged with addr:housenumber=* and the other addr:* keys. Tags can be added to
    • isolated nodes
    • nodes that are parts of building polygons ( = entrance=*s )
    • building=* polygons
    • on polygons representing the perimeter of the site.
  • Buildings with multiple house numbers -There is currently no consensus on this. Here are some possibilities:
    • Create an address node for each housenumber and place each node somewhere on the building outline (or inside the building).
    • Separate the numbers by commas (e.g., "11,13,15").
    • Specify the range (e.g., "10-95"). This is the preferred method when such a range is officially used for the entire house. You may also use **addr:interpolation=* to describe whether that includes odd, even or all numbers.
