OpenStreetMap US

There are hundreds of communication channels inside the OSM community. But, the dispersion of conversations can impede understanding and collaboration between OSM users.

We will demo a data store containing the number of messages and users in various community channels between end of 2021 and now, sorted by channel type, region, language. We will present challenges and opportunities derived from the analysis of this data and help you answer questions like:

–What can we learn from OSM communication habits and patterns? –What channels are best for global or local topics? –What are the preferred languages for OSM users by region? –How can you best connect with and onboard new OSM users in your community?

No recording is available from this session.
