CloudMade is a company which produces APIs, rendered maps, and geographic-related services. Unlike many other companies in the same field, CloudMade uses exclusively Creative Commons-licensed OpenStreetMap data, and was cofounded by the founder of OpenStreetMap, Steve Coast. Many of its products compete with Google Maps by providing APIs for web sites, applications, and devices to use the rendered map data.

CloudMade's Style Editor allows users to edit the color scheme and layers visible in web-accessible maps - allowing customization that Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, and other large-scale competitors have not provided.

CloudMade is distributed between London, Kyiv, Ukraine, and Menlo Park, CA.

CloudMade's map renderings, combined with the OpenLayers javascript interface, have recently been used on the White House's Delivering on Change map.
