Open Infrastructure Map is a view of the world's infrastructure mapped in the OpenStreetMap database.
This data isn't exposed on the default OSM map, so I built Open Infrastructure Map to visualise it.
How do I contribute?
If you want to edit the data and you're new to OpenStreetMap, check out learnOSM.
If you already have some OSM experience and want to start tagging infrastructure things, take a look at the tagging guidelines for power and telecoms.
How do I access the data?
All the data currently displayed on OpenInfraMap is sourced directly from OpenStreetMap.
If you can consume vector data in Mapbox Vector Tiles format, you can fetch vector data directly from the OpenInfraMap tile server using the TileJSON file.
If you need relatively small extracts of data, you can use Overpass Turbo to generate these in GeoJSON and similar formats.
For larger amounts of data, you will need to fetch and process the raw OSM data directly, which is relatively complex. You may wish to use our commercial export service.
How is OIM made?
The following mess of tools and services make Open Infrastructure Map run:
- Postgres/PostGIS for data storage
- Imposm3 for filtering and importing the OSM data
- Tegola for vector tile rendering and serving
- The MapLibre GL JS web interface
The background map data is generated thanks to tools and support from Protomaps.
Where's the code?
You can find the code which runs OpenInfraMap openinframap Github organisation.
Who made this?
I'm Russ, and I like infrastructure. Please don't contact me about copyright claims or similar, these should properly be directed to OpenStreetMap.
