This year’s annual State of the Map US conference is shaping up to be a big deal. From June 6th to 8th, OpenStreetMappers from all over the world will come together at the United Nations headquarters to share their latest mapping work and their visions for the project’s future. Check out the amazing program covering community, cartography, mapping techniques, and education with examples from nonprofits, government, universities, businesses and more.

This conference comes at a time when OpenStreetMap and open geospatial data is just starting to reveal their power. Just last week in the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake, the open map has shown once again that it has become critical infrastructure to some of the biggest and most important institutions on the planet. In the past ten years, we have seen the community-driven project grow from a crazy idea to global coverage. OpenStreetMap continues to gain traction in government, and it has become more than competitive with proprietary data.

We’re excited to join amazing speakers in a jam-packed program and to connect with everyone. Here are the sessions where you can catch us:

Book your trip and join us. We’re looking forward to seeing you in New York!
