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.

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.
