OpenStreetMap contains objects that exist at the moment – that is, millions of buildings, roads and other terrain features. You are free to mark any details of the surrounding world that interest you.
The map does not include estimates such as ratings, former or hypothetical buildings, or information from copyrighted sources. Unless you have received special permission, do not copy data from any other cards.
An editor is a program or website that can be used to edit a map.
A point is the simplest element of a map, like a restaurant entrance or a separate tree.
A line is a line or curve that connects points, such as a road, stream, lake outline, or building.
A tag is a unit of description for a point or line, such as the name of a restaurant or the speed limit of a particular road.
