AND and OpenStreetMap join forces to create digital maps
AND Automotive Navigation Data donated digital maps of the Netherlands, China and India to the OpenStreetMap Foundation to create the most up-to-date map in the market. With this partnership AND recognized the power of a community, the Web 2.0 developments and it wants to stimulate the development of new and innovative applications.
OpenStreetMap gives the community the opportunity to create maps with up-to-date geo-data and shows the results immediately. Pure community collaboration at its best. "Overall we want to enable users of mapping data to also be contributors, from reporting errors to doing full surveys." According to Steve Coast, one of the founders of the OpenStreetMap project.
