OpenStreetMap Data French Polynesia

OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a free, editable map & spatial database of the whole world. This dataset is an extract of OpenStreetMap data for French Polynesia in a GIS-friendly format.

The OSM data has been split into separate layers based on themes (buildings, roads, points of interest, etc), and it comes bundled with a QGIS project and styles, to help you get started with using the data in your maps. This OSM product will be updated weekly.

The goal is to increase awareness among Pacific GIS users of the richness of OpenStreetMap data in Pacific countries, as well as the gaps, so that they can take advantage of this free resource, become interested in contributing to OSM, and perhaps join the global OSM community.

OpenStreetMap data is open data, with a very permissive licence. You can download it and use it for
any purpose you like, as long as you credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors. You don't have to
pay anyone, or ask anyone's permission. When you download and use the data, you're granted
permission to do that under the Open Database Licence (ODbL). The only conditions are that you
Attribute, Share-Alike, and Keep open.

The required credit is “© OpenStreetMap contributors”. If you make a map, you should display this
credit somewhere. If you provide the data to someone else, you should make sure the license
accompanies the data
