Short report about attendance at OpenStreetMap 23-25 September 2016[edit]

Geertivp (talk) has attended the September 2016 OSM Conference in Brussels. It was a fluently organised conference with lots of interesting sessions at the VUB. Nice to see that the way of working of OSM and WM is quite similar. Both organisations rely on a vast number of volunteers.

I did like the following subjects:

I believe we could invest in common use of Open data between OpenStreetMap, WikiMedia, and Wikidata.

I believe we would need to make more use of Open data sources… could we not verify how we could collaborate with Public services (Alberto?) => AGIV, PICC

Maarten, could OpenStreetMap and MediaWiki not be a common subject that we could develop together with OKFN (Open Knowledge Foundation)?
