Does anyone know an open online mapping platform like openstreetmap that

map, changing and adding polygons, and their colors and metadata. I should
also be able to view areas by, say, population density and other statistics.
The closest thing I've found is "click2map", which is not opensource.
Something needs to be created just like it. Try it out, and create a

If this is not available, I will do everything I can to help build it!
