Foursquare ditches Google in favour of crowdsourcing

Foursquare has started using crowdsourced maps on its desktop site, ditching the Google Maps API that it had used since launch.

This comes as the site embraces the OpenStreetMap movement, which is a Wikipedia-style effort to create free world street maps curated by its users.

Foursquare’s new interface is designed by start-up MapBox and for users it means that the maps, icons and colours will be slightly different the next time they log on.
