The State of the Map

Thanks to a lot of hard work from all involved, we have a conference web site up over here. Please spread the word! This will serve as a base for info for the upcoming event:

  • The State of the Map – First openstreetmap international conference
  • Manchester, England
  • 14-15 July 2007

There’s a Call for proposals up. Got something to speak about? We’re interested in a broad range of topics:

  1. Freeing Up Access to Geodata – The political, commercial and opensource implications of open Geodata
  2. Redrawing the Map the OSM Way – GPS, surveying, data editing methods and additional sources of base data.
  3. New Uses For A New Style of Geodata – A look at new and existing uses for OSM data.
  4. Cartography 2017 – where are we headed?
  5. Building Blocks for Collaborative Mapping – Data storage, processing, scalability and delivery in a wiki-like environment.

It doesn’t have to be exclusively about openstreetmap – feel free to suggest mini-talks, talks, BOF sessions, posters and more. Oh, and it wouldn’t be an openstreetmap conference without mapping all of the city either, would it?
