Geofabrik
« on: 26 February 2016, 02:22:26 »
At Geofabrik – German for "geo factory" –, we extract, select, and process free geodata for you. We create shape files, maps, map tiles and full-blown web mapping solutions. We provide advice and training to our customers dealing with OpenStreetMap and keep them up to date.

They have several free OSM-based tools for use - see OSM tools, and a download server with excerpts and derived data from the OpenStreetMap dataset available for free download. They also produced Best of OpenStreetMap which shows places particularly well mapped on OSM.

Interestingly they have also done a Separate Data project to enable standard OSM mapping while saving privacy-relevant data to a separate data base in parallel.
