2016 State of the Map (SotM) Asia - Philippines

Why the Philippines?

We hope to make the most out of the 7th International Conference of Crisis Mappers in September, 2016, and discussing the feasibility with organizers of ICCM Manila to co-hosting SOTM Asia.

The ICCM conference hopes to attract 500 participants, with their theme conference of “Building Resilience: Inclusive Innovations in Crisis Mapping”.

The local organizer expressed their interest in collaborating for the event, and with the cooperation of the OSMph community, develop a parallel track / agenda to the ICCM conference focusing on OpenStreetMap.
