Overture is a collaboratively built, global, open map data project for developers who build map services or use geospatial data. Overture Open Map Data contains data that are standardized under the themes of Admins, Base, Buildings, Places, and Transportation. Overture also includes a Global Entity Reference System (GERS) which encodes map data to a shared universal reference. Beginning with the Overture 2023-11-14-alpha.0 release, the data is available as cloud-native GeoParquet files.
