OpenStreetMap Foundation Formation 22 August 2006 Type company limited by guarantee Location England Website osmfoundation.org
It is a non-profit foundation whose aim is to support and enable the development of freely-reusable geospatial data. As its name suggests, it is closely connected with the OpenStreetMap project, although its constitution does not prevent it supporting other projects.
OSMF is a membership organisation, with all members entitled to vote at a General Meeting on Foundation activities. OSMF members do not determine how OpenStreetMap itself operates, only the Foundation. Membership is open to all on payment of the membership fee of £15 per year. As of November 2009, there were 265 members.
The Foundation is run by a board of seven members, including the Foundation's officers: Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.
