The Rapid Editor

Rapid is a free open-source web-based editor for an OpenStreetMap. In the past the focus was on conflating AI-generated datasets with OpenStreetMap data but the future for this editor is conflating authoritative datasets with OpenStreetMap. 

Humans are in the loop, people reviewing data authoritative datasets and adding them to OpenStreetMap with a few clicks! 

So you might be wondering, what is Authoritative data? And perhaps it doesn’t even matter what authoritative means maybe the most important thing is it correct.

If you are interested in OpenStreetMap you might enjoy this episode which is a great introduction to OpenStreetMap as a project but also explains some of the commercial interest in updating the map which adds a lot of context to Rapid and its development and future.
