Hi Peter,

Thanks for getting in touch. Clifford and Frederik already made good
points, and I have little to add except perhaps also subscribe to talk-us,
which is where most U.S. based mappers communicate. I do not know (of) any
HI based mappers off the top of my head, but if there are any, they may
hang out there - or folks who know them.

Another tip is to search meetup.com for local groups that have an interest
in geo / mapping.

You can subscribe to talk-us here: http://lists.osm.org/listinfo/talk-us -
I will cc this message there.

Martijn
