State of the Map US 2017By WRLD Team on 31st October 2017 | Open Source We had the pleasure of attending State of the Map 2017 this year, the OpenStreetMap communities’ annual U.S. conference to talk open source mapping and data, and of course celebrate community achievements. The event offered a rare chance to connect with mappers, businesses, GIS specialists, government agencies and non-profits who all respectively collaborate around the free and editable map of the world, OpenStreetMap. The WRLD team was really impressed by the very open and transparent discussions as well as the shared ideation around mapping problems and solutions at the event, not only by the OpenStreetMap Project teams, but among different mapping providers too. We enjoyed talking to:
- Mapping companies
- Companies interested in geo-locating their data
- Open street mappers who were interested in how we use their data and how they may use our 3D mapping platform.
