OSM is centered on the very idea of documenting local knowledge of the 
whole Earth and you can study the map documenting that on osm.org.  
None of the software projects you used as example does either have the 
necessity to strive for such a broad geographic distribution to fulfil 
its purpose nor does it have an actual breadth of contributors that 
comes anywhere near that of OSM.

As others have said the only project you can really use for comparison 
here is the WMF - although this comparison comes with problems too of 
course.
