OpenStreetMap Data in Production OR Labeling OSM Streets with Foursquare and Mapreduce

Day: Saturday
Time: 11:45am

This talk covers two wildly divergent concepts. The first is a survey of the use of OSM data in production at tech companies. Lots of companies are using OSM basemaps, but who is actually using OSM data and how? and if not, why?

On a complete tangent, we’ll be talking about a project at Foursquare to help add street names and address ranges to OSM using our existing crowdsourced data plus a neat-o mapreduce pipeline to associate names and streets.
