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.
