OSM offers users a more accurate and up-to-date map than what is available via commercial maps because it is edited by more than 1.6 million editors around the world (with the number of editors doubling every year).
The OSM crowd-sourced model enables edits to be published every minute and the Scout team can incorporate these edits as quickly as within a week (as opposed to the months it may take to update with commercial map providers).
In some cases, it's only a few minutes after virtually chatting, thanks to location-based features.
SKOUT is the developer of a location-based social networking and dating application and website.

SKOUT has received million in investment from Andreessen Horowitz and has been funded by early-stage investors including Jan Brandt, former vice chair of AOL; Jarl Mohn, founding president and CEO of Liberty Digital; and Hans Akerblom, founder and chair of Scandinavian Leadership AB.
