About this event

The State of the Map Africa (SotM Africa) is a bi-annual regional conference that celebrates the culture of open mapping, open data, GIS and its impact across Africa. The first SotM Africa conference was hosted by the OSM community in Uganda in 2017 and in 2019 in Cote d’Ivoire.

This year’s conference will build on a new strategy envisioned for OpenStreetMap Africa as a renewed, strong, and growing network, and as part of the global open mapping movement.

This year’s conference will provide a diverse and fun space for everyone to collaborate and be a part of the OpenStreetMap Africa community.

We will also lay the foundation that will provide us with a solid base for the open, collaborative, and participatory community that we want to build and is needed for our movement to diversify and thrive.
