*** Presented by OSMF at State of the Map 2013

With such a large community, OpenStreetMap requires some entity behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. That entity is the OpenStreetMap Foundation. The OpenStreetMap Foundation is a UK-registered not-for-profit organization that supports the OpenStreetMap Project. This support includes acting as a legal entity for the project and being a custodian for the computer servers.

Many of the activities of the foundation are carried out by Working Groups, and at State of the Map 2013 we heard more about the activities of each Working Group.
