OpenStreetMap as a high-quality, topical and free background map

OpenStreetMap (OSM) is an international project, founded in 2004. Its goal is to create a free world map. OSM collects worldwide data about roads, railways, rivers, forests, buildings and everything else, that you can generally find on maps.  

Free background maps  

OSM has grown to a serious alternative to paid map services in Germany. You can see that the direct integration of OSM into existing GIS infrastructures is increasing.
