A group met to discuss OAM at State of the Map The OpenStreetMap annual conference on Sunday, 12 July 2009. Discussion was led by Cristiano G. and several enthusiastic attendees decided to participate in "Rebooting OAM". Following State of the Map, OAM was discussed in some detail at the RELIEF experiments coordinated by Star-Tides  and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) . Many thought it to be a clearly missing piece of the puzzle. NPS is interested in supporting the OAM reboot, and would potentially like to organize a 3day workshop in Monterey, CA. For this to be a success the OAM community needs to organize a draw up a clear and achievable agenda for such a meeting.
Developing a Technical Proposal
Please contribute to the draft Technical Proposal.
