OpenStreetMap as alternative to Google Maps

Recommended Posts

With all the changes that are happening after Google introduced the pricing changes for Google Maps it might be worth looking at other alternatives like OpenStreetMap...?

Did you read the announcement about the new setting to limit map api requests?

I've  explored everything OSM offers and it's not be possible to offer a 100% free solution that maintains feature parity with the current version or even a guaranteed QoS. It's also not allowed to use some Google Map services together with a different map solution because Google's TOS prohibit this. So what are the alternatives? A solution with less features or a solution with a different paid provider (which one because there are so many!). In both cases it would be necessary to re-write important parts of the functionality because it's not written in a way that you can easily drop in a replacement.
