Cake! At the Tokyo anniversary party

The OpenStreetMap 6th Anniversary Birthday party is a past event which took place on Friday 20 August 2010 in several locations around the world!

London, UK

In London we celebrated in much the same way as we have previously celebrated it... by getting together and going to the pub! Blue Posts (map) (Cycle there) Newman Street. Just north of Oxford Street, closest tubes are Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus. Also walking distance from Great Portland St on the circle line.

Hannover, Germany

By a remarkable stammtischtastic coincidence, Stammtisch Hannover is already scheduled for the same day (Fri 20th) So I guess that makes Hannover the OpenStreetMap anniversary party capital of Germany this year. Pub.png!

Toronto, Canada

In Toronto we'll be joining in Friday 20 August 2010 from 6:30pm onwards

See Meetup group for upcoming events.

We had seven enthusiastic attendees ranging from a new-that-week-editor to experienced OSM contributors.

Amsterdam, the Netherlands

It's time that we also celebrate OSM's birthday in the Netherlands. We've talked with several people about it, and they've come up with a great way make this into a awesome party! Just a few hints: There's lot's of music for people whom OSM is like music to their ears; a parade for people who like to navigate and a demonstration of the Royal Navy how to imprison pirates for people who like to catch data-vandals. More info here.

And what would a party be without fireworks ? .... yep ...

Friday 20 August 2010 from 6:00p.m onwards. Location: Stichting Nederland Kennisland, Keizersgracht 174, Amsterdam (map)

Digitale Pioniers is a project of Kennisland. We're grateful for the funding we got from Digitale Pioniers several years ago to jumpstart the OpenStreetMap project in the Netherlands. And now they want to celebrate the 6th birthday of OpenStreetMap with us.
