Draft: This is the initial place holder for a proposed CWG for the US Chapter of OpenStreetMap.


  • Increase awareness of OpenStreetMap and its accomplishments among the general public and within the mapping community
  • Improve communication within OpenStreetMap US so members are informed about current activities and mapping efforts


  • Provide press releases on upcoming US events and other OSM worldwide events that impact the US Chapter.
  • Provide local communities tools to help them communicate effectively (not just prewritten releases but also mailing services)
  • Build metrics to track effectiveness
  • Use social media, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. Support owners of these accounts with recommendations.
