After this Sunday prices go up for the State of the Map, the OpenStreetMap conference coming to Portland, OR the weekend of October 13-14, from the discounted rate of $80 (and $50 for OpenStreetMap US chapter members). The conference is a great chance to learn about OpenStreetMap and how you can use it, meet people leading and contributing to the project, and pick up some new mapping skills. If you do mapping work and care about open data, you’ll want to get involved in OpenStreetMap. You can register here.

Our team will be out in force, leading several sessions at the conference. The schedule itself, while not yet public, is really exciting. Here are a few talks we’re particularly interested in, and there are some other highlights listed on OpenGeoData.

More details on the conference are at, and be sure to register by Sunday, September 16 to get the discounted rate.
