Can OSM be used in classroom teaching as a definitive instance of a geographic space? We provide instances of how OSM as space may be of interest to researchers and for students of geography alike. Concepts of human geography manifested in OSM can be used to understand how digital geographies and offline activities are intrinsically interwoven with and influenced by each other. Thus, introduction to digital geography in classrooms can be through concepts in human geography.
