Google Cloud Endpoints vs OpenStreetMap: What are the differences?

Developers describe Google Cloud Endpoints as "Develop, deploy and manage APIs on any Google Cloud backend". An NGINX-based proxy and distributed architecture give unparalleled performance and scalability. Using an Open API Specification or one of our API frameworks, Cloud Endpoints gives you the tools you need for every phase of API development and provides insight with Google Cloud Monitoring, Cloud Trace, Google Cloud Logging and Cloud Trace. On the other hand, OpenStreetMap is detailed as "The free editable map of the whole world". OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, caf茅s, railway stations, and much more, all over the world.

Google Cloud Endpoints and OpenStreetMap are primarily classified as "API" and "Mapping APIs" tools respectively.

Advice on Google Cloud Endpoints and OpenStreetMap

From a StackShare Community member: "We're a team of two starting to write a mobile app. The app will heavily rely on maps and this is where my partner and I are not seeing eye-to-eye. I would like to go with an open source solution like OpenStreetMap that is used by Apple & Foursquare. He would like to go with Google Maps since more apps use it and has better support (according to him). Mapbox is also an option but I don鈥檛 know much about it."

Mapbox

I use Mapbox because We need 3D maps and navigation, it has a great plugin for React and React Native which we use. Also the Mapbox Geocoder is great.

Google Maps

Google Maps is best because it is practically free (they give you $300 in free credits per month and it's really hard to go over the free tier unless you really mean business) and it's the best!
