Map Compare

Map Compare shows you different maps from OpenStreetMap and Google side by side. Use the drop down menus over the maps to choose the map type for each map. You can move and zoom any map as usual and the other map will follow. Hold down the shift key and move the mouse to zoom in to that area. You can save the link named Permalink to always return to this page with the same map types and position.

You can use one of the pre-configured map profiles: Apple, Austria, Baidu, BBBike, Berlin, Berlin Historical, Bing, Black/White, Boundaries, Commercial, Cycle, Esri, Falk, Geofabrik, Germany, Google, HERE WeGo, High Resolution (Retina), Hillshading, ITO World, Kompass, LGB Brandenburg, MapBox, MapQuest, Michelin, Night, Norway, openmapsurfer, OpenStreetMap, Public Transport, Russian, Satellite, Skobbler, Sweden, Switzerland, Thunderforest, Topo, Uni Heidelberg, Waymarkedtrails, Waze, Yandex

Here are some shortcuts:

Press 'f' or ESC to toggle fullscreen (shift: no map name, CTRL: white map name)
Press '+' or '-' to zoom in or out
Press arrow right, arrow up, arrow down, or h, j, k, l to navigation
Press '1','2','3','4','6', '8', 5=15, 7=24, 9=all    to show that number of maps
Press 'p' to create a permalink / share a link
Press 'g' to jump to the current geo location
Press 's' to open address search
Press '?' or '/' to get this help

For experts: you can configure the default number of maps, zoom level, prefered maps, maps order or add your own tile server in the Map Compare Admin Console
