We’re happy to announce that the 2013 State of the Map US conference will be in beautiful San Francisco at the Mission Bay Conference Center June 8-9. Plan to join us to connect with other mappers, skill up on mapping, learn how to work with OpenStreetMap data, hack on the latest OpenStreetMap improvement, and just get to know our amazing community.

Together with this announcement we launch StateOfTheMap.us 2013, which we will be building into the main resource for planning your visit as this event takes shape.

Main Conference: Saturday + Sunday, June 8 + 9

Our main conference will feature a series of community-led sessions on OpenStreetMap case studies, related technology, mapping parties, ideas and tools to help us improve the map, and much more. Check out last year’s schedule for an idea of what’s in store.

In the coming weeks we’ll issue a public call for proposals asking the community to submit session ideas. Got something exciting to share about OpenStreetMap? We’d love to have you as a speaker. Watch this blog, the [talk-us] list, and @sotmus on Twitter for updates.

State of the Map US is designed to bring together the many individuals, organizations, and companies who make up the OpenStreetMap community – so expect to reconnect with and meet new mappers through hallway conversations, coffee breaks, and evening drinks and social events.

State of the Map 2013


Workshops: Friday, June 7

We’ll lead into the conference with a day of workshops designed to introduce newcomers to mapping and using OpenStreetMap data, and get them ready for the full conference. And having that many people in town is also a great excuse for an evening social event.

Hack Day: Monday, June 10

At the last conference, many of us found the need for an extra day to get together, sit down, and get work done. On Monday June 10, we’ll provide a space to do this and food to fuel us for a day of hacking, plotting, improving today’s tools and inventing tomorrow’s – you name it.

Community scholarships

We want State of the Map US to be accessible to all community members. To help we’ll be offering scholarships for contributors who need an extra hand to make it to San Francisco.

Help with the event

We’re looking for volunteers to help with the conference, from speccing it out to helping with local outreach to manning the registration table. To get involved, join the State of the Map US planning group.

See you in San Francisco!

We’re looking forward to seeing you at State of the Map US 2013 in San Francisco. Stay tuned here, to the [talk-us list]@sotmus for the call for proposals, scholarship information, and other announcements and updates.
