Keypad-Mapper 3 is an easy-to-use, new version of the well-known Android app that records the GPS coordinates of house numbers so that users can add them later to OSM. This free app records house numbers, saves address data, takes GPS photos to support the mapper when entering the data in JOSM, indicates the GPS reception strength of GPS and GLONASS, and exports the recorded information. This app was developed for the free contribution and development of free map data, the source code is published on GitHub. Anyone can install this app and start collecting house numbers without any extra cost. ENAiKOON believes that everyone should have access to free navigation software and map data, and this app will help create a complete database of map data. To contribute to OSM, all you need is an account with www.openstreetmap.org, acquire house numbers, and upload the collected data to the OSM database.

It’s that easy! Keypad-Mapper 3 is now available for download on Google Play
