SotM 2019 in Africa: Think global, Map local!

Welcome to the bid proposal page for hosting the State of the Map conference 2019 in Africa-Cameroon

The Conference

Local actions for global challenges

The State of Map (SotM) conference is an annual international conference organised by the OpenStreetMap Foundation which has been in existence since 2007.

In the view of next year's SotM conference in Africa, we wish that SotM international conference merges as one to organize the annual conference in one of Africa's Nation. This could serve as an opportunity for an African Nation to host the global event. We aim at discussing on the impact of global challenges on local OSM communities.

We are looking forward to welcoming representatives from all over the world four our next year's event hopefully in Africa-Cameroon.

Why Cameroon? Because the centroid of Africa in OSM is located in Cameroon...

Cameroon is described as "Africa in miniature", with reference to the fact that the country offers most of Africa's diversity from cultural (with French and English as its two official languages) toits diverse landscapes that represent the continent's major climatic zones.

Since the beginnig of our mapping activities in 2010, we have become one of the most active OSM community in Africa.

It will be a great honor and offer for Cameroon to be the host for 2019 SOTM annual conference as this will create an impact on the local communities as well as Africa in general. Please kindly find below a short video which summarizes our works and projects.
