In 2021, OpenStreetMap US launched the Mapping for Impact program. Through this program OSM US partners with organizations and agencies focused on civic, social & environmental justice issues in the US to leverage OpenStreetMap data for their mission. This session will provide an update on impact made so far and how we aim to bring in wider community involvement in the program’s growth.
Jess Beutler is the Program Director at OpenStreetMap US. Her focus is to strengthen and expand the impact and breadth of programs for the OSM US community, such as Mapping for Impact and TeachOSM. Prior to working with OSM US, Jess has led participatory mapping projects and supported OpenStreetMap communities across sub-Saharan Africa, southeast Asia, and the Caribbean.
