Proposed ParticipationEdit

Wikimaps is a project that bridges activities in Wikimedia and the OpenStreetMap in the area of historical maps. I am presenting the project in the State of the Map program. There will be a birds-of-a-feather meeting with project participants that come from the Open Historical Map project. The OHM community within the OpenStreetMap develop a mapping environment for historical maps. It will be an opportunity to develop our projects further together.

My Wikimania 2013 presentation can be found on SlideShare

Goal and Expected ImpactEdit

We will create closer collaboration with the Open Historical Map group to start creating a common ground between the Wikimedia and OpenStreetMap communities. We will also raise awareness of the project among the OpenStreetMap community. Meeting with the OHM members is a kickstart for the Wikimaps development.
