State of the Map US 2022

The next State of the Map US conference is headed to the Southwest! Dive deep on the intersection of open mapping and cities, community mapping around the world, routing and transportation, autonomous vehicles, and more. This will be our 10th year of State of the Map US and we are excited to celebrate with you!

The Heart of the Southwest

From rock climbing to cycling, golfing and outdoor dining, Tucson knows how to take advantage of the nearly year-round sunshine. April in Tucson will bring 80 degree weather - perfect for getting outside to map and mingle with the OSM community. In addition to its fantastic climate, Tucson has a vibrant cultural and artistic community that is steeped in the history and traditions of Mexico and the Indigenous people whose land was divided into modern day Arizona & Mexico.

State of the Map US will be hosted by the University of Arizona, a diverse community of students, researchers and residents who care passionately about the people and places of southern Arizona and OpenStreetMap. There will be a welcome social Thursday evening, two days of talks on April 1st and 2nd, and other activities on the 3rd.

Health Protocols

We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable conference, and highly recommend COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test before attending State of the Map US. We will follow any University of Arizona protocols that are in effect at the time which can be followed closely on this site.
