State of the Map 2020 is taking place online on 4 and 5 July 2020. We have created an exciting program with youโ€”the OpenStreetMap community. For the duration of the conference, we have chat rooms set aside for virtual sponsor booths as well as breakout sessions that can be booked by groups of mutual interest, or used without prior planning.


Take a look at the conference booklet for a printable version of the schedule.

For smartphone schedule viewers or calendar apps there is a machine-readable version of the schedule available at
