    3. 3. OpenStreepMap’s Story First there was Steve Coast 1 10s 100s 1,000s 10,000s 100,000s 1,000,000s Then there were some of Steve’s friends Then Steve’s friends recruited more friends Then Steve spoke at conferences Then people started signing up on their own OpenStreetMap now has critical mass Expanding community through new tools and apps Number of mappers: Late 04 Early 05 Late 05 Early 07 Early 08 Mid 09 … every 3 days … 1000 new people … sign up to map with GPS devices, phones & computers … creating the richest global map
    4. 4. Crowdsourced Mapping Activity Editing tools Mobile Mapping Mobile device data capture Web Mapping Armchair map editing Result Complete and rich maps of the world

Worldwide Mapping Traction Aug ’ 10: 100x the mappers of Navteq or TeleAtlas Aug ‘04 1,000 1 10,000 100,000 1,000,000 Jan ‘06 Aug ‘07 Dec ‘10 Mar ‘09 Wikipedia-like Growth Navteq Mappers Tele Atlas Mappers OSM Mappers Our Active Mappers Mapping Resources Rapid Completion Aug ‘06 Aug ‘07 Aug ‘08 Germany Germany Germany March: 12,000 active mappers Increasing Richness Tele Atlas OSM Stanford University Stanford University
