    The Rails application that powers OpenStreetMap

    Are you trying to click a symbol on the map at https://www.openstreetmap.org/? If so, I’m also a bit frustrated that this doesn’t work. What you can do is to choose “Map Data” in the menu on the right under “Layers”.

    Lots of people use OSM data for many different purposes. some folks use OSM as a basemap or a background on which to display other information. Some people do data analysis with information that is in the OSM database, like parking space density or network analysis for biking safety. Some people use it to create art projects, like location based haiku or ASCII based maps. Some people use it for routing, like finding running routes with green space or visualizing safe places to bike. Some people make video games with the data based on the real world, like Pokemon Go, Minecraft, and Orna.
