A humble request to the whole community: please enter detailed information about the bugs on our GitHub. Otherwise, it may be lost and the bugs may not be fixed.

If you can help someone else, please do. We are grateful for any saved bit of time 🙏

Is building routes easier or more complex in Organic Maps compared to other apps? Can it be done even more conveniently/with less clicks? How to make it easier for new users to discover the way to build a route in OM?

Here is an article with a user's opinion.

In 2023 Organic Maps got its first million users. It would not be possible to scale without the help from our beloved community. A million thanks for your energy and time, your donations and support 🙏 ❤️ 🍃

In 2023:

  • New features were added, including GPX import, Ruler tool, Outdoors map style, Background voice directions, Android Auto (in Google's review now), and others (see our news for details)
  • 15 app updates and hotfixes were released
  • A lot of improvements for the search and routing, map icons and styles, and general usability
  • 4.6 average rating on Google Play from 7,372 users
  • 4.8 rating on the AppStore from 2717 users
  • 1992 commits from 167 contributors on Github
  • 960 merged Pull Requests
  • 724 closed issues (almost 2000 open issues left to fix/implement 💪)
  • Total 7710 stars on GitHub
  • More than a thousand support emails were answered

It's possible to do even more in 2024 if we get enough donations to scale the infrastructure, reward our contributors, or hire a full-time working team. One of our goals is to provide a privacy-focused map alternative to Google and Apple Maps. Another goal is to educate and engage more users in contributing to OpenStreetMap. Good map quality means happier hikers, cyclists, drivers, locals, tourists, and explorers. Happier everyone!

Checking in at SOTM EU 2023 in Antwerp. Organic Maps (OM) would not be possible without the OpenStreetMap (OSM) community. Thanks to everyone who volunteers and improves the Map!

We aim to create easy-to-use maps for everyone on the Planet while respecting privacy and keeping the code open. It is hard to do alone, so we are looking for motivated community members who can lead the development of the complex features (better OSM editor, Public Transport, traffic info, user-generated content, and many more), help with scaling app support, and promote OpenStreetMap and Organic Maps. The more users know about OM, the more users know about OSM. More OSM contributors mean better quality map data for everyone. That's a win-win!

P.S. The app update is coming soon, please stay tuned!

Organic Maps shares the 5th and 6th place on the list of most popular OSM editors together with Rapid!

A short announcement before the details about the September Organic Maps release. We are looking for volunteers to help us in different areas. A lot of interesting and challenging work (did you already check 1800+ issues on Github? 💪) awaits on the open-source, community-built road to the best, fastest 🚀, easy-to-use 👴 👵 🧒, and privacy-focused maps. Want to help us with the app and website development, marketing, PR, financing, user support, or in any other way? Say [email protected].

If we get enough money, we can significantly speed up the development by hiring a full-time team and rewarding the most active contributors. If we get more users, we get more donations. Donate and spread the word 💸! Let's call it Organic Crowdfunding 💰

Several new features are available in the September update. You can easily measure distance and build straight-line routes in the same way as you are building other routes, and even simpler, with a single tap! We called it Helicopter Routing but then decided to rename into the Ruler to avoid confusion. Another new Android feature is background voice directions. Now Organic Maps can talk with you from your pocket 🙂

The OSM data issue mentioned in the article should be fixed in the upcoming Organic Maps update. Stay tuned!

We are looking for someone (or for a team) experienced with zola (or hugo) static website generators to improve our current website for mobiles and desktops. There are many tasks there from redesign to adding new sections, languages and translations. Please let us know if you are interested at [email protected]

The source code of the current website is available on Github.

Planned improvements are also there in the issues list, we will update it with more details soon.

… OpenStreetMap is well known by the geospatial community, but does the average person use it? To help answer this question this week Ed welcomes Roman Tsisyk to the podcast. Roman, a co-founder of Organic Maps, the most widely used consumer-facing, OSM-based mapping service. In their discussion, Ed and Roman explain the differences users experience with Google Maps vs OSM and discuss how the two can work together. Organic Maps is a privacy-focused, open-source fork of app. The offline feature makes it particularly convenient for travellers, hikers, and cyclists. Listen as Roman explains how he and his team use the power of community to keep evolving their maps, and why having "regular people" contribute to mapping is so important.

Organic Maps'te GPX içe aktarma artık destekleniyor! Artık GPX kayıtlarınızı KML'ye dönüştürmenize gerek yok.

Organic Maps'in kurucu ortağı Roman, FOSS (Özgür ve Açık Kaynak Yazılım), projemiz ve diğer ilginç şeyler hakkında konuştu. Bağış yapın yapın ve gizlilik odaklı çevrimdışı haritaların gelişimini desteklemek için bizi tanıdıklarınızla paylaşın!

Ekibimiz ve sevgili katılımcılarımız için yoğun bir dönemdi. Sizler için yeni bir uygulama ve harita verisi güncellemesi hazırladık. Ayrıca bu yıl Organic Maps, aşağıdaki özellikler için Google Summer of Code 2023 programında 4 hak kazandı:

  1. Android Auto
  2. Mobil ve masaüstü Linux, Mac ve Windows için daha iyi kullanıcı arayüzü (Windows'ta OM'yi oluşturmak ve çalıştırmak için hala biraz taşıma (porting) gerektiriyor)
  3. Yeni Vikipedi makalelerini almak için Vikipedi ayrıştırıcısı (şu anda 2022 baharına ait eski dökümü kullanıyoruz)
  4. Açık Hava Sporları, Bisiklet, Sürüş, Turizm ve diğer özel katmanları desteklemek için daha iyi harita şekillendirme sistemi

Umarız öğrencilerimiz bu yıl görevlerini tamamlamayı başarır ve Organic Maps'i daha iyi hale getirir.

Her zaman olduğu gibi, lütfen uygulamadaki hataları ve sorunları bize bildirin. Haritayla ilgili tüm sorunları ise adresinden düzeltin.

Or for any other ways to help us speed up the translation process not only for Whats New, but also for other texts. Any ideas and help are appreciated! Want to peek at the full list of changes?

The full list of languages is available here for Android and here for iOS. We can add all languages to our website (its other pages are translated now using Weblate).

Drop us an email if you are interested at [email protected]

Congratulations to the with 10M registered users! Organic Maps would not be possible without OSM.

Is there anyone speaking Hindi, who can help with proof-reading the translations?

Mutlu yıllar dileriz 🎄! Bizim için en güzel hediye; doğru şeyi yaptığımızı, zamanımızın ve çabalarımızın gezegendeki birilerine yardımcı olduğunu bilmektir 🌎. İşte size bizden küçük bir hediye 🎁: Yeni yılın Organic Maps güncellemesi AppStore, Google Play, Huawei AppGallery ve FDroid'de yayınlandı!

Bir sürü sorunu düzeltmemiz ve bir o kadar özelliği eklememiz gerekiyor (şu anda GitHub'ımızda 1200'den fazla sorun/öneri mevcut). Birçoğu uygulamayı geliştirmekle alakalı. Bazı özellikler ise daha karmaşık. Bu özellikler ayrı, bağımsız açık kaynaklı proje olarak yapılabilir. Mesela; haritadaki yerlerin fotoğraf ve yorumları, trafik durumu veritabanı, toplu ulaşım hizmetleri, bulut yedekleme ve eşitleme, çevrim içi harita, gezi planlama için web editörü, harita stili editörü, seyahat rehberleri, diğer uygulamalar için API/SDK vs. Bağış yaparak, katılarak veya böyle bir projeye liderlik ederek bize yardımcı olabilirsiniz!

Organic Maps projesinin ana hedefi mevcut ticari haritalara açık ve gizlilik dostu bir alternatif oluşturmaktır. Bağış, yardım ve desteğinizle hizmetimizi herkese ücretsiz sunarken bu hedefe daha erken ulaşabiliriz. Ayrıca, Organic Maps'in geliştirilmesine yardımcı olabilecek herhangi bir bağış kampanyası biliyorsanız lütfen bize bildirin. Örneğin, bu bağış kampanyası Almanya'daki katkıda bulunanlar tarafından kullanılabilir.
