If you're new to mapping in OpenStreetMap, consult this comprehensive rundown of common features and how to tag them. These local tagging guidelines provide more details about features and conventions specific to the United States. More specific guidance and resources are available on state- and city-specific pages:
If you've already mapped your neighborhood or hometown to great detail, there are many opportunities to improve OpenStreetMap's coverage of a particular topic throughout the country. Find an ongoing mapping project that interests you or delve deep on a long-term project such as TIGER fixup or social equity mapping.
The U.S. community is also spearheading several technical projects that welcome new contributors. OpenStreetMap Americana is a map style aimed at familiarity to Americans. OpenHistoricalMap is mapping the whole world just like OpenStreetMap, but throughout all of history.
OpenStreetMap U.S. is a local chapter of the OpenStreetMap Foundation that supports the OpenStreetMap project in the United States by fostering awareness and ensuring broad availability of data, continuous quality improvement, and an active community.

Local mapping communities
Local communities throughout the United States get together on a regular basis online or offline to discuss OpenStreetMap, plan mapping projects, conduct field surveys, and assist other local organizations with their map needs. Join a meetup near you – some groups also welcome remote participants. If you want to start or revive a local group, OpenStreetMap U.S. is happy to provide support and connect you with people who can help! Make sure to add any OSM-related event you're organizing or attending to OSMCal to help us spread the word!
