The Open Mapping Revolution and What It Means for Government

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Open mapping data commons like OpenStreetMap and OpenAddresses fundamentally change how we create and share geospatial data. Communities are building geospatial dataset of immense value, all in the open. This democratizes data production, spurs innovation, stimulates economic growth, and transforms how government and citizens work together. Open mapping takes on traditional government functions - so what does this mean for government? Our session will delve into how governments have creatively engaged with open data communities to build better data, more efficiently, in true collaboration. And with the entire audience, we will explore emerging opportunities for open mapping in even more open governments and the Global Goals.
