OpenStreetMap’s annual international conference, State of the Map is returning to the UK, the first time it has come to the UK since the very first State of the Map in 2007.

State of the Map is the global gathering for everyone contributes to and/or uses OpenStreetMap. There will be keynotes and a breakout stream of presentations and workshops examining current practice, organisation and relationships; and preparing for the changes we can expect in coming years. In fact, so much has happened and is happening to OpenStreetMap that the theme of this year’s conference is “Change”.
