Begins Tuesday, August 10 at 11:30 a.m.

OpenStreetMap (OSM) is dubbed “the Wikipedia of map data” and is a powerful tool used by GIS professionals, cartographers, mapping enthusiasts, governments, non-profits, and for-profit companies to access standardized geospatial information across the world. Pop in any time during this session to learn how YOU can contribute to this global GIS database in just a few minutes. During the virtual “mapathon”, you will digitize map features (buildings, roads, landcover) along with your fellow TUgis attendees. All are welcome, whether you are completely new to GIS or a experienced GIS pro.

Present Your Work

Presentations are accepted in the following categories:

Online presentations are 15-minutes long. Presentations will be grouped according to topic and run by a moderator. Each presentation will be followed by a short interactive Q&A session. We’re excited to announce we’re using a new proposal system. Returning presenters will need to create new accounts in the new system.

The Exhibitor Showcase is a 15-minute session devoted entirely to our vendors! Each exhibitor will moderate their own session, and can use this time in any way that you want: meet with your customers, give a demonstration, or run a product Q&A session. Ideally, attendees are drawn in and encouraged to reach out to exhibitors in the Virtual Exhibit Hall for further discussion.

The deadline to submit a proposal was April 26, 2021.

NOTE: All sessions will be delivered through the comprehensive event platform. Each session will have a moderator present who will introduce presenters and keep time. The audience will be able to view the session and ask questions and make comments using the chat features, but their microphones and video will be muted. Please ensure you will have access to “hard-line” internet using an ethernet cable during the time of the conference.
