Hi, I am developing a standalone application for traffic congestion analysis in java platform using maps. Can you please guide if there is a way to query your server to get congestion details of a particular traffic message channel (TMC) in a given location. Congestion details can be in terms of like average speed or color code of traffic severity. Please if you can provide information on this.

Also, Is there a user term agreement or similar that would describe permitted uses of your data…? Are there any restrictions on the use/storage of the data and images from your servers?

Appreciate your response.

OpenStreetMap doesn't have dynamic data like current traffic flows. You will have to find other sources for this. Check out which is still in its infancy but aims to provide what you are looking for.

Use of our data is governed by the Open Database License, see the FAQ on the OSMF wiki. Our server API is intended for editing only; if you want to run live queries against a production machine, set up the production machine yourself and feed it with a planet import and differential updates.
