Speaking at OpenStreetMap Meetup in Denver tomorrow

As mentioned previously, I'll be speaking at tomorrow's OpenStreetMap meetup in Denver tomorrow, at the cool new MapQuest offices downtown. My attempt to crowdsource the presentation got a great response, and I got lots of suggestions for interesting content. I plan to have something for everyone, along the following lines:
  • A quick intro to OpenStreetMap for any newcomers
  • Some tips on using the Potlatch 2 map editor, which provides some cool new features - this should be good for both newcomers and experienced mappers
  • Examples of how government agencies from various parts of the world are using OpenStreetMap
  • Cool new tools for developers using OpenStreetMap, like Leaflet and Kothic
  • Some interesting applications using OpenStreetMap
  • Last but not least, how OpenStreetMap was used to show that you can in fact walk across Dublin without passing a pub (pubs have always been a mainstay of OpenStreetMap!)
We'll also have some discussion about the state of OpenStreetMap in Denver and Colorado, and brainstorm on things that we might want to focus on before State of the Map and FOSS4G are in Denver in September! You can get full details on the meetup and sign up here.
