Geo NoVA Message Board › Last chance to register for State of the Map conference before price increase

Last chance to register for State of the Map conference before price increase

Scott C.
Reston, VA

Hi all,

I'm not sure what the % overlap is between GeoNoVA and GeoDC so I told Bonnie I'd pass this along.  She's one of the organizers of GeoDC and she's helping organize State of the Map this year.


Message follows:

The price to attend State of the Map - the OpenStreetMap conference coming to Portland October 13-14 - is set to increase after this Sunday (9/15), so if you plan to come register now for just $80 ($50 for OSM US chapter members), http://stateofthemap....­.
This will be a great event for anyone using OpenStreetMap in their work or interested in learning more about the only free and editable map of the world. People of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome, and there will be several sessions geared to newcomers to OpenStreetMap, including a hands on introductory workshop.
Other highlights include:

  • Steve Coast, the founder of OpenStreetMap, will kick off the conference with a keynote presentation.
  • Trimet, Portland’s public transportation service agency, will talk about how OpenStreetMap data powers their trip planner.
  • Foursquare and Flickr will talk about how and why they use OpenStreetMap.
  • The World Bank will talk about its work using OSM to help build more resilient communities.
  • The National Park service will show off its new basemap.
  • Community leaders working in Portland, Macon GA, and Indonesia will present on their communities and what they're doing locally.

More details on the conference and registration are at http://stateofthemap....­. And stay tuned for the full schedule, due out in the next few days.
