  OpenStreetMap, an open source map of the world

   OpenStreetMap is an open source project to collaboratively map the entire
   world. OpenStreetMap is both free and Free, allowing open access to
   geodata. There are over 70,000 participants in OpenStreetMap worldwide,
   and community members are using the data to create a variety maps, such as
   opencyclemap.org and openrouteservice.org. We are working to increase
   participation here in the US. This presentation will focus on the past,
   present and future of geodata, OpenStreetMap goals, as well how people can
   get involved.

  Sarah Manley

   Sarah is the community ambassador for OpenStreetMap in the Bay Area of
   California. As community ambassador she works to engage a wider range of
   participants in OpenStreetMap by organizing mapping parties, speaking
   engagements and collaborations with community groups. She is also working
   to develop a curriculum that utilizes OpenStreetMap*s data and tools.


  Although it is not required, we like to have an idea of how many
  people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if you
  are planning to attend.
