OpenStreetMap vs HERE Routing: What are the differences?

Developers describe OpenStreetMap as "The free editable map of the whole world". OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, railway stations, and much more, all over the world. On the other hand, HERE Routing is detailed as "Intelligent routing algorithms for safe and efficient journeys". It is a web service API that offers easy and fast routing for several regions in the world. Easily solve complex challenges for moving fleets, passengers and businesses.

OpenStreetMap and HERE Routing can be primarily classified as "Mapping APIs" tools.

Some of the features offered by OpenStreetMap are:

  • Local Knowledge
  • Community Driven
  • Open Data

On the other hand, HERE Routing provides the following key features:

  • Get accurate ETAs with routing algorithms that use rich map data sets and dynamically updated information.
  • Solve complex real-world use cases without any additional coding
  • Routing instructions in 108 languages for different modes of travel: car, foot, bicycle, motorcycle and public transit
Advice on HERE Routing and OpenStreetMap

From a StackShare Community member: "We're a team of two starting to write a mobile app. The app will heavily rely on maps and this is where my partner and I are not seeing eye-to-eye. I would like to go with an open source solution like OpenStreetMap that is used by Apple & Foursquare. He would like to go with Google Maps since more apps use it and has better support (according to him). Mapbox is also an option but I don’t know much about it."

I use Mapbox because We need 3D maps and navigation, it has a great plugin for React and React Native which we use. Also the Mapbox Geocoder is great.

Google Maps is best because it is practically free (they give you $300 in free credits per month and it's really hard to go over the free tier unless you really mean business) and it's the best!

I use OpenStreetMap because that has a strong community. It takes some time to catch up with Google Maps, but OpenStreetMap will become great solution.
