Every day thousands of people contribute to OpenStreetMap, a project with the lofty goal of mapping the world. Most OSM software is free and open source, and the data is open for anyone to use. The idea is simple: if you make a map of your town and I make a map of mine, we can share those maps on a common platform. With enough people contributing, we can make maps and collect data throughout the world.
