Navmii Appoints Steve Coast, OSM Founder, as Board Advisor

LONDON — Navmii, the free, smart navigation and traffic app, today announces that Steve Coast, the founder of the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSM), will join Navmii as a board advisor to further enhance its B2B mapping products and services. Navmii has created enhanced, automotive grade OSM maps using its map enhancement platform and billions of points of mapping data collected from its users. Navmii will offer this enhanced data for license to B2B customers both as pure map data and mapping tile services to power web and mobile solutions.

Navmii has had OSM maps at the core of its app since its inception and has grown a global community of millions of users. Navmii’s next focus will target the B2B market to become a highly competitive and flexible alternative to existing automotive grade map providers. Coast’s commitment to open source mapping and extensive experience of developing map data will help Navmii develop the next generation of maps.

Steve Coast started the OpenStreetMap project in 2004, which quickly grew into a huge crowdsourced community project of volunteers helping to build an open source map of the world. During the past ten years the project has mapped the entire planet and is now used by companies, governments and humanitarian organisations.

Steve Coast comments: “Navmii has built a fantastic reputation in the navigation space. The next stage is to fuel its growth into the B2B mapping sector and I am confident that my experience will help Navmii to become a best in class, highly competitive map data provider.”

Peter Atalla, CEO of Navmii says: “Navmii has grown into an active community of millions of drivers around the world. OSM has been at the very heart of this. The appointment of Coast helps Navmii take the next step, as we establish ourselves as the best automotive grade OSM map data provider.”
