Frida: Free Vector Geodata Osnabrück


This project developed a free dataset of geographic vector information for the German city Osnabrück (State Lower Saxony).

The data is free in the sence of Free Software and licensed under the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL v>=2). Since 2007 it is additionally available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 license and the Open Database License (ODbL) from OpenStreetMap.

Frida was a great success, the geographical data has been used by many projects e.g. Thuban, GRASS and others to demonstrate the capabilities of Free Software for handling geographic data and teach GIS.

Detailed free geographic vector data have been almost unavailable for Europe in 2002. Only the USA had released significant data paid by taxes to the public.

Frida's data have been transferred to OpenStreetMap. Please join OpenStreetMap to further improve the data situation for Osnabrück and other parts of the world.
