Four workshops will be offered on Friday, June 7, the day before the State of the Map US conference kicks off in San Francisco. These workshops are designed to provide hands on training in OpenStreetMap and web mapping and data visualization techniques.
Two workshops are targeted to people new to OpenStreetMap, introducing the open data set, walking through how to edit and use the map, and diving into how to make custom maps with OpenStreetMap data. The second set of workshops is targeted to more advanced users with a hands on session on cartography and data visualization techniques, and one on contributing to OpenStreetMap and walking through the infrastructure powering openstreetmap.org. More details and registration for the workshops is available at the links below:
