UPDATES! due to space change from UN to the Kimmel Center, we’ve had to reduce the number of tickets available. We also have to be out of the room by 5pm (including clean-up). Please see schedule change below.

Calling all Maptime organizers, attendees, and enthusiasts! Maptime Summit is coming, and we want you to be there.

On Monday, June 8th (immediately following State of the Map US 2015), join us at the NYU Kimmel Center for a day full of learning, collaboration, and excitement as we get to know each other and strengthen the ties throughout our international Maptime landscape.

  • Share your experiences and things you've made at Maptime
  • Organize with other Maptimers around topics you're interested in (like Maptime for Kids!)
  • Get insight on making your own tutorials and better using the ones available
  • Learn how you can get involved with Maptime HQ
  • Strengthen your chapter and your relationships with other chapters
