The OpenStreetMap US Mappy Hours are virtual hangouts for the U.S. community. User:mvexel started the Mappy Hours in 2013 and continues to host them. After a hiatus, the Mappy Hours are back for 2019.

What are the Mappy Hours about?

The Mappy Hours don't really have a formal agenda. We typically chat about things like:

  • Mapping and Tagging
  • Imports
  • Local groups and local events
  • The OSM US organization
  • What's happening in the rest of the world
  • Anything you want to discuss!


We welcome 5-minute presentations about any OSM related topic! Please edit this section to add your presentation, or get in touch with User:mvexel. Upcoming presentations:

  • Alan Bragg, Using JOSM Map Paint Styles to highlight address points (April 24)
  • Geoff Maas, Open Data in Minnesota (May 22)


Mappy Hours will be planned for the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6pm Pacific time but may be rescheduled based on your feedback.

The next few are scheduled for:

  • April 24, 6pm PT
  • May 22, 6pm PT
  • July 10 2019, 6pm PT
  • Monday, August 12, 6pm PT SIGN UP
