OpenCage GmbH provides an API service for worldwide forward and reverse geocoding. The underlying data is all open, OpenStreetMap is one of the primary data sources. Customers range from one-man consultancies through to major multinationals.
The key advantage of OpenCage’s service is the combination of the straightforward and flexible terms and generous pricing that open data allows, and enterprise level reliability.
OpenCage is also a corporate member of the OpenStreetMap Foundation and regularly publishes interviews on their blog with OpenStreetMap communities around the world. In addition they also organise the London #geomob event, a regular meetup for location based service developers. Many of the featured projects use OpenStreetMap. It is a great chance to put your finger on the pulse of geo-innovation in the UK in an informal and friendly atmosphere. Please come along to the next #geomob.Ed Freyfogle, Founder
Zoku have developed Hy; a pair of ear-worn computers that augment your reality with virtual audio. With built in microphones, sensors and sound wearable can serve you information and entertainment throughout the day.
Think of being able to navigate a new place with audio clues only. The audio can be seamlessly augmented in to your environment – you can reach you designation by following the sound of venue, or maybe some background information about the location.
Zoku is a trading name of Third Skin Limited.
Transport API is an online service providing UK-wide travel data across rail, bus and car and is Britain’s first, comprehensive open solution for transport data. Transport API was an early pioneer of using open data to build a business and was an early adopter of OpenStreetMap. With key open data feeds including live departures & arrivals, timetables, journey planning, tweet mapping, fares, and performance indicators, there is a large ecosystem of developers and organisations building on the platform.
Most of our data comes from free open data sources, and we pass it on without adding any onerous restrictions. This is very much a deliberate choice on our part, and we’re proud to serve as an example of a business built on open data principles.
thinkWhere has been involved with OpenStreetMap on a number of fronts. We developed the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team’s Tasking Manager v3 in partnership with HOT (pdf). We hold OpenStreetMap within our infrastructure and use it as background mapping which is served out to many of our customers.
Our expertise includes QGIS, PostGIS, QField, GeoServer, MapProxy, and advanced in-house open source GIS developer skills. Our customer sectors are typically Government, Humanitarian, Land & Property, Capital Projects and Data Publishers. As an example in 2019 we developed a new online service in partnership with Falkirk Council which signposts essential services such as food banks, digital access and advice for residents.
We are looking to get involved in similar types of consultancy type projects to develop solutions that make use of or improve the content of OpenStreetMap data. We also host community Missing Maps events in our local area of Stirling, Scotland to help capture OpenStreetMap data in priority areas.
Freegle (www.ilovefreegle.org) is like online dating for stuff. We hook up people who have things they don’t need with people who need things they don’t have. It’s free to join, free to use, and everything on it is free.
We have more than 3 million members across the UK, and we’re run by hundreds of lovely volunteers who give their time and skills for free. Like OpenStreetMap, we are free to use but not free to run, and we are happy to support this wonderful project in our own small way.
Don’t throw it away, give it away!
A big thank you to all our corporate members. If you would also like to support OpenStreemMap UK please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can get the registration sorted.
