OpenStreetMap (OSM) is 19 years old! As the global project completes its ‘teen years’, Ed reflects back on the early days along with OSM veteran Andy Allan. Going back to the early days when there were only 20 streets mapped, Ed and Andy discuss what was and what is to come for OSM in the next twenty years. You’ll hear all about the slow but satisfying process or early virtual mapping days. Whether you're a long-time OSMer or just joining the community, tune in to the discussion of how far OpenStreetMap has come but also whether fundamental changes are needed to continue the growth.
