Open Source for Good helps our lives and systems in so many ways. An example is the introduction of Open Streets Map which is a free, editable map of the whole world which is maintained by volunteers. In most parts of the world, Geo-data is not free and you won’t have full access to it but OSM gives you access to the Geo-Data.
