  • Nominatim

    Open Source search based on OpenStreetMap data

  • OpenKeychain

    OpenKeychain is an OpenPGP implementation for Android.

    OpenKeychain is an Android app for doing some basic GPG related work. It can verify signatures (hidden in the "encrypt/decrypt" menu)

    Also it integrates i.e. with K-9 mail to sign and verify.


  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • osmand_map_creation

    OSM data + open address data compiled for use in OSMAnd

    While not ideal, I've found a usable solution.

    This GitHub repo [1] has map files generated using OpenAddresses.

    Load the appropriate one for your area and you can search using addresses in the normal format. They currently provide maps for North America, and are regenerated roughly monthly.

    (Thank you pnoll1!)

  • omapsapp

    🍃 Organic Maps is a free Android & iOS offline maps app for travelers, tourists, hikers, and cyclists. It uses crowd-sourced OpenStreetMap data and is developed with love by MapsWithMe (MapsMe) founders and our community. No ads, no tracking, no data collection, no crapware. Please donate to support the development!

    Agree, would be great with some kind of open POI service synced to OSM, and with reviews tacked on

    FYI: You may want to check out Organic Maps, that is developed by the original Maps.me founders: https://organicmaps.app

  • OSMBuildings

    3d building geometry viewer based on OpenStreetMap data

    One use of that data is creating 3d renders, like this site: https://osmbuildings.org/
