The increased use of OpenStreetMap in commercial products creates many opportunities and challenges for the OSM community and its commercial users. While the creation of spatial data remains the domain of a few experts, the continued growth of mobile applications results in the creation of massive geodata by consumers from which the OSM project can certainly benefit. In parallel, commercial users will need to feel less constrained to protect their geodata allowing them to shift their focus on developing greater competitive solutions for their customers. This session will explore possible collaboration models between commercial users of OSM and the broader community, and offer insights into reaching greater participation in the OSM project.
