With advanced data compression, MAPS.ME circumvents expensive data plans and roaming charges, allowing users to download and store maps for offline use.

Maps are rendered quickly and clearly on the screen, and use very little space on the mobile device.
Mail.Ru Group Acquires the Popular OpenStreetMap-based MAPS.ME to Accelerate Expansion of its My.com Brand with Future Products and Services

Moscow - November 13, 2014 - Mail.Ru Group Limited (LSE: MAIL), one of the largest Internet companies in Europe, today announced the acquisition of MAPS.ME, a mobile maps and navigation service based on OpenStreetMap data that allows users to access maps both online and offline. The acquisition will enable My.com, Mail.Ru Group’s subsidiary focused on global audiences, to offer additional products and services to a growing base of users. Employing OpenStreetMap makes data collection free, and increases reliability as users upload new maps in real time. Additionally, the MAPS.ME architecture allows for scalability without increasing development costs.
MAPS.ME apps for iOS and Android allow users to download detailed maps for any location around the world and use them even when offline. The service pulls data provided by OpenStreetMap, the open source project dedicated to create a crowdsourced, highly detailed world map. Thanks to an advanced data compression algorithm, MAPS.ME works fast and the maps are lightweight. Over 7M users have downloaded MAPS.ME since its release in 2011. The apps are actively used all over the world including Russia (18% of users), the USA (13%), Germany (7%), Italy (4%) and China (4%). MAPS.ME is one of the top rated apps in the Travel category in more than 100 countries.
OpenStreetMap is created and updated by editors, just like Wikipedia articles: users all over the globe can edit maps, adding cities, roads and locations. This crowdsourced model allows for the most detailed and current map of the world. For instance, new buildings and roads can be added in real time, and the editors can add not just streets, but also paths. The maps are constantly updated by the global community of enthusiasts that has grown exponentially to 1.8 million members.
