New and improved OpenStreetMap goes live

US: OpenStreetMap has received a design overhaul. The new design is more focused and creates more space for the map as well as a better experience for newcomers. The redesign offers a better experience for first time visitors. On the main page, new visitors now have an explanation of what OpenStreetMap is about, rather than a cluttered and narrow sidebar without a clear information hierarchy.

The new design also offers a better experience for contributors. “With this redesign, the site feels fresher and more modern, and better reflects the competence, experience, and capability of the OpenStreetMap community,” a blogpost from MapBox claimed.
