Our corporate members

OpenStreetMap UK is delighted to have the support of the following corporate members. With their support we are working to meet our aims of supporting and growing OpenStreetMap in the UK.

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.

Freegle 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!

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.

As Europe’s largest conservation charity, National Trust looks after nature, beauty and history for the nation to enjoy. Thanks to millions of members, volunteers and staff National Trust is able to care for many miles of coastline, woodlands, countryside and hundreds of historic buildings, gardens and precious collections.

In 2019 the National Trust attended our AGM and shared work they were doing to help add paths to OpenStreetMap.

We’d also like to thank previous corporate members CEN Group, Zoku and Transport API for their support.

A big thank you to all our corporate members. If you would also like to support OpenStreemMap UK please e-mail, and we can get the registration sorted.
