How Facebook, Apple and Microsoft are contributing to an openly licensed map of the world – The ODI
Note who is missing from this? Google. It makes total sense that Apple and Microsoft would be working to commoditize the lead that Google has in base map data. I also found it interesting that Apple is participating in this, but I don't think they are donating their new base map data they are sourcing themselves. Map data is a strategic advantage for a number of services.
