Whether you’re one of the 125,000 members of the fast-growing OpenStreetMap community, or you want to see for yourself how they collaborate to create the free and open wiki-style world map – the State Of The Map weekend is a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with many of the community leaders.
In a weekend packed with talks and workshops, you’ll be brought up to speed with the latest developments in and around the worldwide OpenStreetMap community. Delegates from all over the world – from Germany to Georgia, from Pakistan to the Palestinian West Bank – will join you to talk about the state of the map in their areas and discuss new ways of moving OpenStreetMap forward.
Highlights include fifteen community members from developing countries speaking about their local communities, made possible by a generous OSI grant, and a panel discussing open geodata licensing featuring Jordan Hatcher, the creator of the ODbL.
