Introduction

Open Street Map (OSM) is an open and editable map. It has a global coverage, and is created and edited by a community effort.

Please visit the project homepage in order to learn more and also how to contribute to build an even better map. The project is located at the following URL: http://www.openstreetmap.org. Samples of two selected places in Denmark and Austria are shown in the figure below.

Usage Notes

  • Mapping of disputed territories around the world: EMD policies on the OSM background map in windPRO is aligned with official OSM policies.
    Citation from OSM-website: "Currently, we record one set that, in OpenStreetMap contributor opinion, is most widely internationally recognised and best meets realities on the ground, generally meaning physical control. In areas without clearly defined borders, the line is approximate." Learn more at the OSM wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Disputed_territories.
  • If you need to use a map with borders different to the OSM databases that are mapped based on the actual in-situ conditions (such as your official national claimed borders or even the interntional recognized borders, then we recommend to obtain an official map from your national ordnance-survey, then attach that as a background map to windPRO.
