by Keith Vance

Using OpenStreetMap's open source data, MapQuest launches eight more country-specific mapping websites.

MapQuest announced today the rollout of eight new mapping sites built using open technology and OpenStreetMap data.

"Over the past seven months, MapQuest has launched a total of 18 country- and language-specific 'open' sites in nations around the world, illustrating the true global need and benefit of open-source maps," the press release said.

MapQuest senior vice president and general manager, Christian Dwyer said, "For the last seven months, we have been very committed to building out country-specific sites based on OSM data. Moving forward, we will be focusing on how and where consumers are both using the maps and contributing to them."

The new sites cover Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore and Sweden.
