Call for Posters

Submit your poster to SotM!

At State of the Map we love hearing what has been done with open map data, but we also love seeing it too. Therefore, we welcome you to participate in our poster exhibition at State of the Map 2019 in Heidelberg!

Your poster could show how well your home region is mapped, it could be a beautiful new style or map. It might focus on a community project or statistics, it might be a poster explaining and inviting people to OpenStreetMap. What’s important, is we want it to be about OSM. We’re also welcoming academic posters about research around OpenStreetMap data.

The posters will be displayed during the conference’s poster session on Sunday evening, where there will be the opportunity to present and discuss the posters over some food and drinks.

Rules for the exhibition

  • Poster should be for A0 size (841×1189mm)
  • Poster should be related to OpenStreetMap
  • Max. 2 entries per person

How to enter
