Communities have different personalities and ways to communicating. Spreading interest in OpenStreetMap around the world takes different approaches for different groups. This talk is a look at characteristics of certain existing OSM communities and why some of those approaches won't work elsewhere.

  • We talk about this a lot, but what does it really mean? I mean let’s think about the US, it is a big place. Is that local? Probably not. Is there something cohesive about the group in some way though?
  • So I asked the wiki. I mean we talk about local community a lot.
  • Do you have to meet each other? Do you have to be interested in the same geographic area.
  • Language, interests, specific communities. E.g. hiking groups. Do we all have to like the map for the same reasons?
  • Over 100,000 Russian Posts on the OSM Forums. Only other country with near that many is Germany
  • OSM Stats so lets look at the top 10 countries from the 12th of October.
  • Compare this to forum posts
  • Or in Indonesia our biggest ourreach is Facebook.
  • Zoo Mapping
  • Atlanta Mapathon
  • Mapping with Kids
  • I mean I guess it depends on what you are defining as local. For example we were doing a project where we needed between 5-70 people to come help with mapping in Jakarta. The same 4 girls showed up to everything. I didn’t think much of it until someone told me why.
  • Gender, culture, interest, language. “level of geekiness”
  • Onemanys local is another mans invasion
  • Let’s think about the potential of brothel mapping depending on where you are.
  • Maybe, this sort of thing freaks people out
  • Do what works for your community, if people are on Facebook cool, if mailing lists are your thing. Just important to think about who you are reaching out to.
