A summary of all the things happening in the OpenStreetMap world.

  • A redesign of OpenStreetMap.org is live since the beginning of December, 2013. You can find additional information in a blog post here.
  • A set of improvements has been pushed to uMap. With uMap you can create a map with OpenStreetMap layers within a minute and embed them into your website.
