OSMfocus app

OSMfocus is Navigation application that is open source under the Apache-2.0 license.

OSMfocus can show details of nearby objects from the OpenStreetMap database such that they can be compared with real world observations. Correcting errors or adding missing information to OpenStreetMap and thus getting it 'into focus' is the main purpose of OSMfocus. OSMfocus is not a map, navigation tool or OpenStreetMap editor.

Discrepancies between the real-world and OpenStreetMap are best observed on-site while memorizing details for later comparison with OpenStreetMap is usually difficult and with a good likelihood of missing the actual differences.

OSMfocus shows key-value pairs as = and abbreviate two pairs that occur quite often, namely highway=* and name=* which are shown with a :. Way objects which has just a single key-value pair of type building=* are ignored when searching for nearby objects. To make better utilization of screen space, the following keys are not shown: kms:*=*, osak:*=*, created_by=*, addr:country=*, addr:postcode=* and source=*.

OSMfocus uses location services and network access permissions for downloading vector map data and background map tiles for your current location.

OSMfocus uses data from OpenStreetMap. This data and screenshots containing maps are © Copyright OpenSteetMap contributors.

Note: This is a fork of OSMFocus. The original project seems unmaintained since 2018. Also see the OpenStreetMap Wiki.
