This wiki contains information about the OpenStreetMap-based University Map. This information is aimed at anyone who wants to use the more advanced facilities that the map offers, or who want to contribute to the underlying OpenStreetMap data on which the map is based. There's some seperate help on how to use the basic map service.

The map can be accessed at http://map.cam.ac.uk/.

There is an introduction and set of examples of what you can do with the map that you might want to start with.

Please report problems, issues, etc. to the UCS Service Desk service-desk@ucs.cam.ac.uk.
