Community building can be hard! Especially here in the U.S., with its sprawling urban areas and vast near-empty areas. How do you start a local OpenStreetMap conversation when geography works against you?
This session will propose an alternative strategy for driving local communities - Local Data Dashboards. What if your city, region, or state had its very own page showing always up-to-date statistics about OpenStreetMap in your areaof new mappers, rankings, maps showing where folks have been busy, and where data is growing stale? What if that Dashboard had social tools letting you easily email local mappers and start a local forum or mailing list? Martijn will show a very early prototype and will ask for your ideas for the Dashboard.
