Overview slides at https://www.rd-alliance.org/sites/default/files/attachment/GeospatialIG__P9.pdf
We had a very packed agenda ,so could not get time for detailed discussions, so i would like to get more ideas and discussions by email on all topics esp. on “The Rise of OpenStreetMap as a World Mapping Agency” .
How will OSM look in 2030?
