Here's our lineup so far - expect this to grow in the coming days.

* Josh Campbell ( from the U.S. State Department will talk about MapGive (, a resource that helps new volunteers learn to map and get involved through humanitarian crowd-sourced mapping initiatives using OpenStreetMap.

* Aaron Lidman ( of Mapbox about will talk about OSMLY (, a project that makes importing new data into OpenStreetMap easier, more accurate, and collaborative.

* Andrew Wiseman ( will talk about how USAID's Office of Transition Initiatives uses and creates OpenStreetMap data to support overseas programs like Libya, Honduras, Haiti and Syria, including working with local groups to map areas and using the data for logistics.

As usual we'll meet at 7:00 pm at the upstairs bar at Stetsons ( at 16th and U Streets NW. Introductions and lightning talks will start at 7:30 pm. Stetsons is a 21 and over venue. If you're not yet 21 but want to attend, message us via meetup and we'll do our best to get you in.
