A casual talk regarding OpenStreetMap (OSM) with my roommate lead to the discovery that Snapchat uses OpenStreetMap as basemap for their map functionality. It was felt great learning about this development.


@sahil I realized that after one weekend afternoon, I mapped part of the city that I live in. My edits showed up on the Snap Map a few days later.


@StampedingLonghorn Mapbox (SnapMap for that matter) are sometime slower for that matter.

I mapped a all the roads in a town to show my buddy they actually show up in SnapMaps but it took almost a month to reflect in Snap.
