Jeux Sans Frontires

A session at State of the Map US 2013

Sunday 9th June, 2013

9:15am to 9:45am (PST)

OpenStreetMap is an incredibly rich source of data that can support many uses beyond mapping. One use is to build silly games that may or may not help with geographic literacy. Sophia and Rich built Street Name Fight over the course of a night after much silliness, Mexican food, and scotch. They will discuss obvious things such as technical details and invite other developers to build simple and fun games using the OpenStreetMap platform.
