So I want to move to use OpenStreetMap for more of my mapping needs. This involves navigation, reverse geocoding and the likes. Does anyone have suggestions on (preferably open) services that provide this (web, desktop and mobile welcome!)

@jalcine Streetcomplete is really nice, I like walking around doing its tasks while e.g. waiting for a bus

@elomatreb Legit! I'm about to use it all of the time. I do want to make my contributors "hidden" so people can't predict my whereabouts.

@jalcine You can create pseudonymous OSM accounts but I don't think you can hide them any further :/

@elomatreb Eh, fuck it. I kinda expose it passively by my check-ins already.

@jalcine @elomatreb

Many in the #OpenStreetMap community are with you on that, and view such metadata as against the GDPR & #privacy ethics.

#Geofabrik provides 2 versions of #OSM data files, one without metadata like usernames for the public, and one with, but you have to have an OSM account.
