Frank and I are off to New York City this weekend for the annual State of the Map US Conference (SotM-US). SotM-US is the annual OpenStreetMap US hosted conference, and this year it's being held at the UN Headquarters. While the venue excites me, the content is really what I'm looking forward to. For context, OpenStreetMap is an online project to create a free map of the entire world that anyone can contribute to. It works similarly to Wikipedia - and contributors are using the project for all sorts of incredible applications. This weekend we'll be seeing some of these talks about building OSM communities, the technology behind it, related projects, and different use cases.
