As the data quality of the OpenStreetMap database improved so did its potential for useful applications. During the spring/summer of 2008 data complexity levels in the UK, Netherlands and Germany reached a level such that routing actually became usable and coincidentally several route planners were introduced who make use of this data in that period, one of which is YOURS. YOURS goal is to integrate other opensource projects as much as possible to produce a usable routing website. Using this strategy it has become (and still is) the first opensource routing website using OpenStreetMap data to provide worldwide coverage. Because of this worldwide coverage YOURS itself has become integrated into many 3rd party applications as an embedded online provider of routing information as well. This talk will give an inside view at the logic behind YOURS, how it effects communities worldwide, its influence on data integrity in the OpenStreetMap database and where it will go next.
