Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) is the most successful term to mark the shift (happened almost a decade ago) according to which citizens, in addition to being data consumers, have also become precious providers of geographic information. The increasingly large volumes of datasets generated by VGI projects have attracted a huge academic interest in a number of topics, ranging from data quality assessment to data mining and data conflation, societal studies as well as ethical and privacy issues. The most popular VGI project, OpenStreetMap (OSM), which aims at the generation of a crowdsourced map of the world, can be nowadays considered as a research topic on its own. In the poster a wide range of the author's current research works on VGI and OSM is shown. These works partially derive from the author’s involvement in three (current or just ended) EU COST Actions: TD1202 "Mapping and the Citizen Sensor", IC1203 “ENERGIC”, and CA15212 “Citizen Science to promote creativity, scientific literacy, and innovation throughout Europe”.
