State of the Map Asia (SotM-Asia) is the annual regional conference of OpenStreetMap (OSM) organized by OSM communities in Asia. First SotM-Asia was organized in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2015, and the second was organized in Manila, Philippines in 2016.
This year’s conference, third in the series, is going to be organized in Kathmandu, Nepal on September 23 – 24, 2017 at Park Village Resort, Budhanilkantha, Kathmandu, an oasis of tranquil wooden garden in the midst of crowded urban Kathmandu.
The event aims to bring about 200 Open Mapping enthusiasts from Asia and beyond. The event will provide an opportunity to share knowledge and experience among mappers; expand their network; generate ideas to expand the map coverage in Asian continent. We have chosen ‘from creation to use of OSM data’ as the theme of this year’s meeting. We believe this event will deepen the bond and enhance collaboration among OSM communities.
