CARTO: OpenStreetMap – Nodes (United Kingdom)

Nodes from the OpenStreetMap database in the UK with extra columns to aid filtering by category.


OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. Created in 2004, it was inspired by the success of Wikipedia and more than two million registered users who can add data by manual survey, GPS devices, aerial photography, and other free sources. OSM is produced as a public good by volunteers, and there are no guarantees about data quality. OpenStreetMap® is open data, licensed under the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL) by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF). OSM represents physical features on the ground (e.g. roads or buildings) using tabs attached to its basic data structure (its nodes, ways, and relations). Each tag describes a geographic attribute of the feature being shown by the specific node, way or relation. Nodes are one of the core elements in the OSM data model. It consists of a single point in space defined by its latitude, longitude and node id. Nodes can be used to define standalone point features.
