Presentations

Martijn Van Exel, Telenav
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is by far the largest crowdsourced geospatial dataset of the world. In recent years, OSM has become an important map data provider for Microsoft, Uber, Lyft, Facebook, Apple, Snapchat, and many others. In this presentation, Martijn will talk about OSM’s rise to this prominence, how his employer Telenav uses OSM to power in-car navigation in millions of vehicles, and how your data plays a vital role in this as well.

Zach Beck, AGRC
We know the AGRC has worked hard to provide statewide basemap products that are useful and relevant.  Zach will share his experiences creating a new statewide vector tile terrain basemap and other experiences authoring basemaps. More information coming
