Mapbox is proud to co-host the first ever Maps Camp on July 9th, 2016 at the UN as part of the OpenCamps conference. This series of 30+ camps will bring together 6,000+ attendees excited about engaging with open source communities. Along with Mapzen, Esri, and CartoDB, we are thrilled to be a part of this event.

Maps Camp will be a full day of talks, panels, and workshops focused on the role of mapping in open source. In addition to talks on the history of GPS and philosophies of open source, there will be representatives from Mapbox on hand to answer any questions you have about our tools and platform. Whether you’re new to mapping or a seasoned geospatial professional, we would love to see you there!
