State of the Map Asia (SotM-Asia) is the annual regional conference of OpenStreetMap (OSM) organized by OSM communities in Asia. First SotM-Asia was organized in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2015, and the second was organized in Manila, Philippines in 2016. This year’s conference, third in the series, was organized in Kathmandu, Nepal on September 23 – 24, 2017 at Park Village Resort, Budhanilkantha, Kathmandu, Nepal.

We brought nearly 200 Open Mapping enthusiasts from Asia and beyond to this year’s SotM-Asia. The event provided an opportunity to share knowledge and experience among mappers; expand their network; and generate ideas to expand map coverage and effective use of OSM data in Asian continent. We chose ‘from creation to use of OSM data’ as the theme of this year’s conference, emphasizing on the effective use of OSM data. We also brought together a government panel from four different countries in this year’s SotM-Asia. We believe this event will deepen the bond and enhance collaboration among OSM communities across Asia.

Editor's Notes

  • A bit about myanmar.

    In 2014 - Suddenly SIM cards were only $1.50 - almost overnight - Myanmar came online.

  • There’s nothing until 2012. It’s a very remote area of the country.
    In 2014 , Major landslide was occurred in Chin State. Most of Geographer , Geologists and Geospatians from Geoinformatics Society in Myanmar were strongly involved in HOT’s remote mapping of Chin state.

  • ARC created remote tasking projects in Pathein region - (Missing Maps)
