Open street map programme

“There are about two billion persons in the entire world who will not look on a proper map,” suggests Ivan Gayton from the charity Humanitarian OpenStreetMap.“It really is shameful that we – as cartographers of the entire world – don’t take sufficient interest to even know where they are. People today are residing and dying without having showing on any databases.”
Recognised as the “Wikipedia for maps”, any individual can down load OpenStreetMap and edit it much too.
