OSM editing

OSM Editing plugin allows you to make contributions to OpenStreetMap, a global community aimed at creating a comprehensive map of the world and providing up-to date open-source data to every user.

Just launch OsmAnd Maps & Navigation app and update the information about different locations.

How to use it (for Android)

The plugin lets you create new objects, so-called points of interest or POI on the map. New shop opened next to you? Add it to the map! Your favorite monument is missing on the map? Put it there in seconds. Also, if you're the owner of a newly-opened business, adding it to the map is a great way to let people find you.

So how to do it? Go to app menu-> Plugins-> OpenStreetMap editing and press Enable.

Tap on the map where the new POI has to be placed. Press on 'Actions', then choose 'Create POI', add its name and other details like working hours, website, etc. You'll also have to register at openstreetmap.com and then provide your OSM credentials to introduce changes.
