Happy Birthday OpenStreetMap! The OSMers in Japan have all the best cake!

The OpenStreetMap 9th Anniversary Birthday party is an event which will take place on Saturday, 10 August 2013 to celebrate the "birthday" of the project. We'll be partying in several locations around the world! In addition, we'll be holding a #BirthdaySprint to push on different software projects.



Toronto Mappers

The mappers of the Toronto OpenStreetMap community celebrated with a guided mapping tour for beginners and a birthday party. New mappers committed their first changesets and then a group of new and experienced mappers enjoyed conversation and snacks.


Meetup in London

Sunny beers in the beergarden at the Doggets Coat & Badge pub on the South Bank from 12:30. See London/Summer 2013 events for more events in London.


Celebration in Montreal, Canada

The OpenStreetMap Montréal user group celebrated the 9th anniversary of OpenStreetMap on 17 August 2013. We first met for a mapping party, where the enthusiasts collected more than 100 POI in a busy district in Montreal. Then we enjoyed a great picnic in Parc Lafontaine sponsored by FACIL.
