Esri Joins the Overture Maps Foundation to Help Build Interoperable Open Map Data


Overture Maps Foundation aims to create open map data that is reliable, user-friendly, and interoperable. The foundation will collaborate with other open data projects, such as OpenStreetMap, to achieve this goal. Members of the foundation will contribute data and technology to create comprehensive, accurate, and customizable real-world map data available under an open data license. Overture’s mission also involves incorporating high-quality geospatial data from cities and local governments to provide maximum benefits to all users of Overture data, including government organizations and their constituents. We can access the Overture data through Esri’s ArcGIS software and other services.
