Foursquare direct OpenStreetMap editing

A little over a year ago, we joined the OpenStreetMap movement, switching our maps over to those powered by OpenStreetMap data and Mapbox Streets. Today, we’re expanding upon that by encouraging our community to directly edit map data.

Now, Foursquare users will see an “edit map” link when editing places on Foursquare.com, which leads directly to OpenStreetMap’s web editor at the right location, where they can join OSM and make updates. Today, it’s rolling out to Foursquare Superusers in the UK, Australia, Germany, and Brazil. We’ll be expanding in the future to other places where location data can be improved.
