    https://www.openstreetmap.org/ 

    Please support when developing location related plugins.
    It's weaker than the Google Maps service, but it can solve the pressure of Google payments.

    Facebook is also using the Open Street Map service.

     

    Our country has benefited a lot by using openstreetmap services for virus tracking (saving a lot of lives).

    This is a good idea as some countries ban google and also, for those that don't like the spying that google does it might be a better option.

     Hei Lee KiWon and Donna..

    I never heard of Open street map..
    I just checked it out.. I really like it...

    Like most people i use google, but more often google is out of date... For example, my house on google has a tree in the front yard with grass...
    Thing is, ive not had a tree or grass in my front yard for 8 years. Also many streets dont exist anymore.

    But still good to get a general idea what planet im on.

    mikel.
