OpenStreetMap US is thrilled to announce the return of Mapping USA in November - this year in partnership with WikiConference North America. Join us for our third annual virtual community gathering celebrating everything you’re contributing to OpenStreetMap (and now, Wikimedia too)! We hope that this joint virtual event will enable many across the country to attend that otherwise wouldn’t be able to join an in-person conference.
We are calling on all members of the OpenStreetMap US & Wikimedia North America communities to share your ideas and session proposals. Whether you are brand new to or have been a core contributor since the beginning, we want to hear from you and invite proposals about contributing to the Wiki and OpenStreetMap ecosystems. Submit your proposal here!
The program will include space for short talks, workshops, birds of a feather sessions, and there’s even room for improvisational sessions, editing/mapping parties and other ideas you might have. In the spirit of our collaboration with WikiConference North America, we are particularly interested in proposals centering on the theme of Open Knowledge Collaboration as well as proposals highlighting projects interlinking Wikimedia + OpenStreetMap.

As always, Mapping USA will be free to all those that attend. We’re able to keep our virtual events free thanks to our sponsors and donations. Is your company interested in supporting OpenStreetMap US? Find the Sponsor Prospectus here and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
