OpenStreetMap US

Thanks to all who came to our townhall yesterday to discuss bids for State of the Map US 2016. We are creating a State of the Map US that is community orientated and we are interested in hearing your ideas on how a national conference can bolster us all. SO! When looking over proposals, we (the OpenStreetMap US board) are going to keep a special eye out for:

  • How the State of the Map US you’re planning improves the US OpenStreetMap community.
  • The progress of your State of the Map US ideas, dates, venue, and cat line-up.
  • The nature of the organizing team. (Is this your first mapping rodeo?)
  • Accessibility for the entire OpenStreetMap US community (is domestic travel to your location affordable?).

Here at OpenStreetMap US we are excited to see these bids, especially if it’s a mapping rodeo! Lasso one of us if you have any other question and send us an email to

State of the Map US

The annual State of the Map US conference is the largest gathering of OpenStreetMap community members from across the country. Come meet the people who create, analyze, and use OpenStreetMap with several days of talks, workshops, and social events. It’s the best party in mapping.
