Facebook Teams Up With Esri on OpenStreetMap-Ready Datasets

New versions of editor RapiD and plugin JOSM were added to the social network’s Map With AI tool set

Facebook is teaming up with location intelligence provider Esri to release new OpenStreetMap-ready datasets for use in building maps.

The social network’s Map With AI set of specialized map editing services and tools will roll out new versions of its RapiD editor and JOSM plugin to work with the new datasets, enabling mappers to quickly add ArcGIS datasets, curated by Esri, to OpenStreetMap—a crowdsourced, highly detailed and editable map of the world.

Esri assembled open data from the ArcGIS user community, processed it for use with OpenStreetMap and published it to ArcGIS Online, enabling Map With AI users to select any of those datasets and zoom into areas they wish to edit.
