The OpenStreetMap
Foundation and You: The
Why, The How and What You
Can Do to Get Involved
Kate Chapman
@wonderchook
kate@...
First some
ground rules
When you see this
chicken, that means
I’m speaking my
opinion (what I think
the OSMF should be)
The OSM Logo indicates
I’m speaking generally
accepted facts about
what the OSMF is today.
My OSM Story
So let’s start with
some facts (and
maybe a couple
opinions)
First the “Why”
Primarily:
Legal and Financial
And the “How”
The OSMF is made up
entirely of volunteers
Board of Directors
Kate Chapman
Paul Norman
Frederik Ramm
Kathleen Danielson
Oliver Kuhn
Henk Hoff
Dermot McNally
Membership
•Normal Members - 272
•Associate Members - 345
•Corporate Members - 10
Yearly Costs
•Normal Members - £15
•Associate Members - £15
•Corporate Members - £1,000
The membership does
not reflect the
diversity of the
project.
Corporate
membership should
be revamped to
include more benefits
(and charge more)
Working Groups
• Communications Working Group
• Data Working Group
• Engineer Working Group
• Licensing Working Group
• Lo...
Budget
~ 70,000 – 100,000 GBP
How is this spent?
•60% hardward
•20% promotion
•20% legal matters
The OSMF will need
to increase our
fundraising to support
the growth of the
project.
Spending based on a
decision made in 2006,
might not make the most
sense anymore
Raising Larger Amounts of
Funds is Going to Require
Some Staff
Large donors require
“Management”
specifically proposals and
reporting
Some worry about
“corporate” control in
OSM, but by keeping the
OSMF weak there is far
more potential for that
control
Not all doom and
gloom, OSM continues
to grow and is moving
from a niche project
to making huge
impact
So….want to get involved?
bit.ly/osmf-join
Volunteer to Help
Run for the Board
Make Your Needs
Known
Happy Mapping!
