Openstreetmap? I've heard about it, but what is this actually?

This event gives answers on exactly this questions and looks behind the map on There will be explanations about how the data structure looks like and how different things find their way from reality to the openstreetmap database. The subsequent workshop discusses the editor JOSM and explains the basics and you can try out how the entering of objects in the database work. Event language is german.
