SOTM 2015 in NYC: One Week Out

OSM1 [ STATE OF THE MAP CONFERENCE, 2015, NYC-United Nations ]

In anticipation of SOTM 2015 at the United Nations this upcoming weekend, a great overview of both OpenStreetMap (OSM) and Humanitarian OpenStreetMap (HOT) can be found via this GitHubGist:

OSM2 [ OSM GitHubGist ]

Throughout the conference program, there are more than a few sessions devoted to OSM for humanitarian work. Its clear that trends in digital humanitarianism and pressing climate change issues are becoming increasingly central to both the development and consumption of OSM as platform and as geodata.

Recently at The New School in NYC, the Milano program hosted a mapping workshop to support the Missing Maps effort associated with OSM and HOT. A blog post giving an overview to this workshop can be found here.
