NGA has publically released their report on conflation services
https://www.1spatial.com/resources/pdf/Public_Release_Conflation.pdf
Click the link "Conflation Services in an R&D Fusion Environment"
Might be pretty useful, since the main focus of the report is feature matching in multilayer dataset conflation.

Right, as otherwise the locality dictates what sort of bylaws you can have.

Anthony's point on the bylaws talk page that a discussion of
principles and alternatives should come before legally drafting seems
wise -- and drafting thzlegalese  to  match our principles and the law
of the chose state should be left to a professional.

Massachusetts has several oddities in recommended not-for-profit
bylaws .... and THREE separate annual reporting requirements. It's the
only jurisdiction I have board / officer / bylaws-committee expertise
in, and I would have to recommend incorporating a national entity
elsewhere. There's probably a state with worse paperwork for a small
board,  but I don't know.

The only safe early choice is probably Delaware ... provided you don't
make replacement of provisional bylaws difficult, which error any good
Delaware attorney should help a provisional board from making. Per
expert I cited in previous post, it may be the only sane choice
anyway.

Having been a Director and Officer of a 501(c)(3) corporation subject
to Discovery in Litigation, I can not recommend serving on a Board
that does not have adequate Directors' Liability Insurance.

Thanks to Bill for his previous post.
I was going to also point out what he mentions here and was in the other
article he linked to - lawyers I have talked to (albeit a small sample) seem
to recommend Delaware for incorporating (non-profit or otherwise - my
startup Spatial Networking is incorporated in Delaware, even though I live
in Colorado).

In regard to having a physical location etc, there are lots of companies
that will act as your "registered agent" and fulfill the needs of having an
office in the state etc. I think this generally costs in the order of a
couple of hundred dollars a year. Some example services here:

http://www.google.com/search?q=incorporate+non-profit+in+delaware

For example, this one charges $118 all in:
http://www.amerilawyer.com/de_non_profit_corporations.htm

It seems far better to me to do the incorporation through an independent
agent like this, rather than associating OSM with the physical address of
any individual member, who might move, lose interest in OSM, etc etc.

So personally I think there is a pretty strong case for just incorporating
through an agent in Delaware, unless there are others who know of reasons
not to do this (IANAL).

Cheers,
    Peter.
