OpenStreetMap US: Connect 2020

Connect 2020 is a free, virtual event to celebrate OpenStreetMap and our community. The event will include an informal Mappy Hour Thursday evening, a scheduled ½ day of talks on Friday, and a day of workshops, birds of a feather sessions and mapathons on Saturday. We hope to make this an annual gathering that enables people from across the country to learn about OpenStreetMap and network with fellow mappers. Learn more at the Connect 2020 page.

A Mapathon is a coordinated mapping event. It is often held inside but can also be an outside or combined activity. OpenStreetMap US is happy to host and support with outreach for your virtual mapathon. Sign up here for an event or to let us know you'd like to host!
