Happy New Year all! - including all lurkers :-)

I think 2015 going to be an exciting year for osm (when is it not?).

We've got a load of social meetups planned (next one Stirling 20th Jan):


and of course the return of SOTM Scotland 2015


Gregory, a visit to map library is also something I've never done (yet). So maybe an end of day activity, somewhere between the close of the friday's talks and going for food/pub would be great if NLS are up for it. 

Chris Fleet and many others from NLS map centre have both presented at SOTM Scotland and helped the project enormously in other ways (providing out of copyright maps for tracing). I hope again they can attend this year and show us what they have been working on. Although it's early days in the planning of SOTM Scotland so we haven't invited / advertised for talks. I'll keep this in mind and see what brews.

I've sort of nominated myself to organise this event with help from Ewan Klein.  I am of course looking for helpers, organisers and ideas.

You can add your name to a task/suggest ideas here:


Anyway, all the best to you all for 2015!
