OpenStreetMap: A Free Map of the World

Most available digital maps labor under various IP restrictions. OpenStreetMap is a project to build, wiki- style, a digital map of the world with minimal legal restrictions. This talk provides an overview of the OSM project, including an introduction to the underlying data model, a quick introduction to the XML based APIs for accessing map data, and some discussion of where Java fits into the OSM universe.
