ABSTRACT
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a project which aim is to create a free editable world map. Success of this project and, especially, free access to its data pushed a number of research groups and institutions to use its map in different ways and/ or to work with it as an information source. Also OSM data became a base for an amount of specific GIS programs and packages which are commercial and, thereby, is not opened for free use. The main components of OSM project will be described briefly within the scope of this article. They include approaches for map production and edition, download of OSM data, usage principles of OSM information source, OSM data structure and their elements, overview of services and applications which use OSM and its data in a varying degree. The second part of the article will be connected with presentation of special OSM-based GIS software: its objectives, possibilities, functions and perspectives. OSM data about transport infrastructure was chosen as an object to clarify existing software features and their usage. With help of this example, the following software possibilities will be shown: OSM data download, their processing and classification, analysis and interpretation of OSM data concerning selected object, creation of different outputs including visualization.

Keywords: OpenStreetMap, GIS software, OSM data, data analysis, transport infrastructure
