“OpenStreetMap is a vitally important collaborative mapping project to enable open source content to everyone, everywhere,” states Andy Dearing, CEO of Boundless. “Events like State of the Map US and the OpenStreetMap project are critical to the success of spreading the benefits of open source, especially open source content, throughout the world.”

OpenStreetMap powers map data on thousands of websites, mobile apps, and hardware devices. OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, railway stations, and much more, all over the world. OpenStreetMap’s community is diverse, passionate, and growing every day. Their contributors include enthusiast mappers, GIS professionals, engineers running the OSM servers, humanitarians mapping disaster-affected areas, and many more. To learn more about the community, see the user diaries, community blogs, and the OSM Foundation website.
