OpenStreetMap: open data that create services and jobs for everybody

The most important characteristic of OpenStretMap, however, is another one: everybody can freely, legally reuse them for any purpose, including (unlike Google Maps) for commercial activities. This is why, especially when paired to Free Software, maps like those of OSM can help people (even if they are NOT software programmers!) to find a job or start their own business!
