Attending State of the Map US offers many opportunities to connect with other mappers, learn how to work with OpenStreetMap data, and hack on the latest OpenStreetMap improvements. This would be a great networking opportunity to connect with other OpenStreetMap users from an amazing ecosystem of enthusiast mappers, businesses, government agencies, and non profits, all collaborating around the free and editable map of the world.
