OpenStreetMap US

The State of the Map US Organizing Committee is delighted to announce the State of the Map US in 2018 will be held in Detroit on October 5th - 7th! We chose Detroit because of the strong committee of organizers from business, government, and the local OSM committee and because it is about time we hosted State of the Map US in the Midwest!

Our venue is the Cobo Center which is located downtown along the Detroit waterfront. We will be hosting 2 days of talks on October 5th and 6th, then workshops, tours and other activities on the 7th. We are also excited to share that we’ll be having an evening event on October 6th. Location details will be released very shortly.

If you want to be sure not to miss a thing make sure arrive on Thursday and head out on Sunday evening. Be ready for a mapping packed event!

Does this sound so exciting you want to do more than just attend? We can always use some help organizing. Please send us an email at to help out!
