Thanks for coming!

State of the Map Scotland was a conference centred around the 'Wikipedia of Maps' - OpenStreetMap[1] - With over 2 million subscribers and rapidly expanding , we are now large enough to gain a lot of attention from larger International Development groups such as the United Nations, World Bank, World Health Organisation, Red Cross, USaid.

We invited members of the International Development Community to meet with us. We very much appreciate your work and we hope that you will be interested in ours.
