About Open Infrastructure Map

Open Infrastructure Map is a view of the world's hidden infrastructure mapped in the OpenStreetMap database.

By and large, this data isn't exposed on the main 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 WikiProject Telecoms.

How is OIM made?

The following mess of tools and services make Open Infrastructure Map run:

The background map data is kindly provided by .

Where's the code?

You can find some bits of OIM on the openinframap Github organisation. More to come, soon.

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.
