These slides were presented at State of the Map 2017 conference in Aizu-Wakamatsu, Japan (http://2017.stateofthemap.org). They aim to provide an overview on some current research trends on OpenStreetMap (OSM), focusing in particular on three research works I have carried out over the last few years: 1) an automated procedure for quality assessment of OSM road networks; 2) an analysis of OSM tagging patterns; and 3) the use of OSM to generate Land Use/Land Cover maps.
This work was partially supported by EU COST Action TD1202 'Mapping and the Citizen Sensor' (http://www.citizensensor-cost.eu) and EU COST Action IC1203 'European Network Exploring Research into Geospatial Information Crowdsourcing: software and methodologies for harnessing geographic information from the crowd (ENERGIC)' (http://vgibox.eu).
