Bulk Data


I represent a company with about 2000 locations, and manually updating each profile is not feasible. Is there anyone who I can contact to deliver the data in bulk?

Thank You,


Hi, Thank you for your interest!

It would be best to post in the Talk-US mailing list https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk-us or the Imports-US mailing list https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/imports-us .

Someone reading either here or on one of those lists might be interested, but there is no guarantee.

The types of questions that need to be answered will be:

  1. What is the license for the dataset? That is generally not a problem if your company created it and wants to place it into OpenStreetMap.

  2. How were the locations obtained? How accurate is the placement? If they were taken from a commercial Geocoder such as Google or Mapquest, it’s not likely that the data can be placed into OpenStreetMap in bulk because of the original geocoder service license.
