As the free and editable map of the world, OpenStreetMap is at once a vastly global and very local project. Chances are there are other OpenStreetMap mappers, programmers or data users in your physical or digital vicinity. Here are useful resources on how to get in touch and learn more about OpenStreetMap.
We'd love to meet you - there are many opportunities to meet other mappers and OpenStreetMap data users to exchange experiences and join forces. Try one of the options below, or just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The annual State of the Map US conference brings together mappers and data users of all backgrounds. It is a great way to dive into the OpenStreetMap community and meet mapping aficionados and professional data users from private sector, government and NGOs.
The OpenStreetMap Slack team is one of the main hubs of the US community: Join Here and chat in real time with others.
Attend a Virtual Mappy Hour hosted by the community where you can ask questions, talk about things you're passionate about, and learn from others.
