On September 23 we convene in Brussels to discuss the achievements and future of OpenStreetMap at the international State of the Map 2016 conference.
The call for proposals and scholarships closed the other week and the organizing committee is hard at work curating a conference from all the amazing (really amazing) applications. But we wanted to let you know something first. We had more session and scholarship submissions than ever!!! Counting any OpenStreetMap conference!! Ever!
Our world-breaking numbers for State of the Map 2016 are:
- 196 session proposals!!!!
- 157 scholarship applications!!!
Everyone has something to contribute to OpenStreetMap and so many want to be at the international conference to say it. In the coming weeks, the conference program committee will read through each of these submissions and we’ll start to put together the program. So expect more news on the State of the Map schedule by end of June. It’s going to be an exciting summer and a geo happy September. We hope to see everyone there!
Omg, I have read the entire article and nowhere in it does it state what open St maps actually is. Why? It should be the first thing someone reads when first coming across your page. At least a mission statement. Coming from a multiple business owner, you have work to do guys.
