A New Vision for openstreetmap.org

A session at State of the Map US 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

1:45pm to 2:15pm (PST)

What could a ground-up redesign of the OpenStreetMap website look like? In this session, Saman will discuss the strengths and shortcomings of the current site design, present a vision for a modern, user-friendly, and responsive openstreetmap.org, and outline possible approaches for implementing such a redesign.

Among other things, the redesign will introduce concepts for strengthening community aspects of the site, improving the on-boarding experience for new users, and defining a more logical information architecture that makes the relationship between the community, data, and map layers of the site clearer. Saman will present both wireframes and fully rendered mock-ups illustrating his plans.
