OpenStreetMap US

This talk is a quick overview of the concerns that led to the formation of the U.S. Trails Working Group (TWG), the structure of the group, and the topics the group is discussing. The TWG’s main purpose is to address safety and environmental issues arising when unsanctioned trails appear in mobile navigation applications. Please attend this talk for an orientation to the subsequent Birds of a Feather session on the same topic where you can join the discussion!

For further information, see the recent OpenStreetMap US blog post.

No recording is available from this session.
