OpenStreetMap is Having a Moment. The Billion Dollar Dataset Next Door | by Joe Morrison | Nov, 2020 | Medium

The open secret Jennings filled me in on is that OpenStreetMap (OSM) is now at the center of an unholy alliance of the world’s largest and wealthiest technology companies. The most valuable companies in the world are treating OSM as critical infrastructure for some of the most-used software ever written.
The four companies in the inner circle— Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft— have a combined market capitalization of over six trillion dollars. In almost every other setting, they are mortal enemies fighting expensive digital wars of attrition. Yet they now find themselves eagerly investing in and collaborating on OSM at an unprecedented scale (more on the scale later).

Wir sollten endlich anfangen unsere Umwelt nicht nur als Raum zu betrachten, Rücksicht nehmen und Umsicht üben.
Ich möchte mit meinem Wissen rund um #Natur, #Naturschutz und #GIS meinen Lebensunterhalt verdienen.
