We received an amazing 100+ session proposals for the upcoming State of the Map US conference. As our program committee evaluates them and forms our final schedule, we wanted to share a sneak peak of what you can expect to hear about at the conference. Here’s just a few of the sessions in the works:

  • Make Maps Better, Together: Collaborative Mapping the GitHub Way by Ben Balter, Github
  • Inside the Eye of a HOT Activation - Typhoon Haiyan, Dale Kunce, American Red Cross
  • Engaging the OpenStreetMap Community: A NYC Government Perspective by Colin Reilly, City of New York
  • OpenStreetMap in the Classroom by Nuala Cowan & Richard Hinton, George Washington University
  • Crowdsourcing The National Map by Elizabeth McCartney, U.S. Geological Survey
  • Keeping Out of the Way - the OpenStreetMap Foundation Simon Poole, OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • Implementing Change in OpenStreetMap by John Firebaugh, Mapbox

Watch for our full schedule coming out next week. You can expect 40+ sessions on improving the map, case studies of OpenStreetMap in business, government, and education, mapping tools and skills, and the future of OpenStreetMap.

A reminder that this Saturday is the deadline for the early bird rate of just $75 to attend the conference. Register now before prices jump.
