State of the Map

State of the Map is the annual event for all mappers and OpenStreetMap users. Enjoy three days in the heart of Europe with talks, discussions, workshops, code and documentation sprints all around the free and open map of the world.

Join us for a three day event around OpenStreetMap in Heidelberg for talks, discussions, workshops, code and documentation sprints.

Our motto: Bridging the Map

Right next to the old bridge in Heidelberg there lives a curious little statue – a bronze monkey. In its hand, it holds a mirror to remind anyone crossing the bridge to look back from where they came from and remember who they are. For the 2019 SotM in Heidelberg we want to take the role of that little monkey and remind everyone that no matter where we are going and what we are doing with OSM, we should never forget that we all come from the same origin: a little map that anyone can modify and use. Whether you are a hobby mapper, a scientific researcher, a humanitarian, an NGO, a government agency, a small business or a global company — we want to bridge the gap between us, or better yet, we want to Bridge the Map.
