OSM Awards 2018
This year, we are again presenting the OpenStreetMap Awards! Nine nominees will receive an award in nine categories at the State of the Map 2018 conference. This is a community award: you decide who the nominees are, before you vote for them.
Call For Nominees: Suggest a person, a group or an organization for an award. We only ask for three pieces of information: a name, a project (what did they do to claim an award), and optionally an URL for any web page that describes the project. Eligible is everything that was announced after 2017-07-01. The call for nominees ends on the 31th of May.
Core Systems Award
For outstanding contributions to any of the core tools, systems, processes or resources. Not limited to systems under OSMF control. The Rails port, osm2pgsql, openstreetmap-carto, iD, JOSM, mapnik and any other tool that mappers use on a daily basis, knowingly or not, are eligible.
For the work she does or maintaining and increasing core processes, and her support of limited volunteer resource in the OSMF. Dorothea may be paid by the OSMF, but that wouldn't ensure someone is so truly keen to see OSM succeed and she goes above and beyond in the work she does.
"You contributed quite a lot to a better transparency of the OSMF work during the past years which - independent of the help you provide within the the OSMF - is of direct benefit for the whole OSM community." - Imagico
I'm sure many other people would like to have the opportunity to make their comments and thanks for her work.
The Nominatim team
I feel Nominatim is a core element of the OpenStreetMap infrastructure and as such should be valued. I would like to nominate the nominatim contributors for their great effort and as a stimulans to further develop nominatim as the only true free geocoding facility on the internet.
Constant work on the iD editor!
