Keeping New York road map perfect
Friday, 2:55 PM – 20 min
OpenStreetMap is long past its initial data collection state: now what matters is keeping the data fresh and correct. We in Juno use OSM for our ride-sharing services, and we rely on it being good. Of course, it isn’t — but in New York, you can be sure you will get the most correct routes. In this talk we will show how OpenStreetMap and its satellite services — MapRoulette, Imagery Index, GPX Tiles, OSRM, and others — help us keep the open map in a perfect condition every day. And how we are setting an example to ride-sharing services by opening data for other mappers.
