Programme Announced for the State of the Map 2009

The long awaited programme for the State of the Map 2009 is now available here.  

For the first time this year, the first day of the State of the Map will focus on the emerging professional users of OpenStreetMap.  The last 12 months has seen a huge increase in the professional adoption of OpenStreetMap.  The State of the Map will feature presentations from GeoFabrik, ITO World, Traveline and CloudMade – some of the companies who are pioneering the commercial use of OpenStreetMap data.

The day will start with a keynote talk from geo-industry veteran, former Intergraph CTO and Spatial Networking Founder, Peter Batty. Peter’s talk will take a bird’s eye view of the entire geo industry, critically examining the role that crowd sourced geo data has to play.

The day will wrap up with the “OpenStreetMap-App Challenge” – a quickfire session hosted by #GeoMob in which 15 start-ups or small businesses will have the chance to pitch their company to the OSM crowd. If you’re a small business who wants to take part, you can apply here. You can find more about the “Pro-Users'” day, here

Some speaking slots at the business day are still available – to find out more, email Nick.

Three day tickets, including lunch, refreshments and t-shirts start from €90 for OSM community and Foundation members. Tickets are going fast – don’t leave it until too late to register!
