Tokyo host for SotM12

The State of the Map (SotM) organizing committee announce Tokyo, Japan as the winning bid for the 2012 International conference for OpenStreetMap (OSM). The annual event will be held September 6th-8th 2012.

There were five proposals to host the leading international OpenStreetMap conference: Aveiro (Portugal), Havana (Cuba), Lille (France), Tbilisi (Georgia) and Tokyo (Japan). “We’ve received several strong bids. Deciding on the best location for State of the Map is always one of our biggest and toughest decisions.” says Henk Hoff, chairman of the SotM organizing committee. With the crisis Japan had to face the past year, the Japanese OSM has grown intensively; making Asia an important part within the OSM community.

“We strongly believe that holding State of the Map in Asia will widen and strenghten the international community as a whole, like it has done in Europe and North America in the past” commented Tiachi Furuhashi of OpenStreetMap Japan.

2012 will host the sixth annual international conference, attracting over 250 people in attendance. Previous editions of this conference were held in Manchester (UK), Limerick (Ireland), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Girona (Spain), Denver (USA). Sponsorship details, volunteer opportunities and more information will be available in the near future.

Friday Night Fun: Rockies Game

Colorado summer nights can be filled with many entertaining options, but one classic event is taking in a major league baseball game at Coors Field and watching the Rockies play!

We’re happy to announce a group outing to the game on Friday night after the conference. We’ll map our way over to the stadium (about a 15 min walk) and enjoy the evening sun, maybe a Coors Light beer, a hotdog and cracker jacks!

The Rockies are scheduled to play the Cincinnati Reds at 6:40pm.

Find out more when you pick up your registration packet at State of the Map in Denver.
