Our map data source is OpenStreetMap (OSM). This is a mapping project similar to Wikipedia, where anybody can create and edit maps.
The more people contribute, the more detailed maps we get. And we believe that the most detailed map of the whole world, created by the open community, is just a matter of time.
- You can also add new places, edit existing POI and building info (addresses, opening hours, names) directly via MAPS.ME. Once you log in with OSM account, your edits will be automatically uploaded to OSM. Please be careful when editing, as your edits will be seen by the whole OSM community.
- The OpenStreetMap database is updated every minute. As for the app itself, we update maps with almost every new release. If you modified something in OSM, your edits will appear in future releases.
