The State of the Map is the conference of OpenStreetMap - the worldwide movement of over 80,000 volunteers who are making a new map of the world.
Have you ever looked at Google Maps and wondered what’s going on in there? Were you shocked by the price of the last map you bought for your TomTom? The answer to all these questions, and more is waiting for you at the State of the Map.
Over three days in July 2009, the worldwide OpenStreetMap community will be meeting to share ideas and stories as they continue their re-mapping of the world.
For newcomers to the project, the event is a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the leading example of crowd sourcing in the world.
Experienced OSMers will enjoy the opportunity to catch up with old friends, put faces to email addresses and share stories of mapping missions.
