State Of The Map 2015

Despite an initial call for venues to host State of the Map, the 2015 conference was cancelled in February 2015[1]. Finding a suitable date and venue proved problematic and with insufficient time to reissue a call for venues it was decided not to attempt a rushed conference. A call for venues for 2016 was issued the following month. 2015 saw regionally-organised conferences in State Of The Map U.S. 2015 in New York City, United States (June), and there wil be the State of the Map Scotland 2015 in Edinburgh, Scotland (October).
