Group DescriptionState Of The Map is the annual international conference hosted by and revolving around OpenStreetMap, the free editable map of the world. The summer of 2009 will see the third edition of this conference, to be held in Amsterdam on July 10-12. For the first time, the conference will spread over a full three days.
Previous editions, in 2007 in Manchester and in 2008 in Limerick, attracted a crowd - OpenStreetMappers and others - from all over the world and renowned speakers from the likes of Google, Multimap and AND, to name a few. This year’s conference will see an extra day - Friday - dedicated to the theme of commercial viability of OpenStreetMap. Prominent professionals in the GIS and general IT industry, as well as politicians, will speak about and discuss current questions relating to this theme: ‘What is the real value of geo-information?’; ‘How can crowd-sourced initiatives like OpenStreetMap compete with commercial offerings?’. This will make for an exciting conference for anyone involved in geographic information.
OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the whole world. Since 2004 it has been made by people like you. It allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth.
