Abstract: Based on the most complete sample of Galactic open star clusters up to 1.8 kpc, we performed statistical analysis of the distribution of open cluster parameters in order to understand the Galactic structure. The geometrical characteristics of a large number of open clusters allow us to determine solar offset and scale height and distribution of reddening material in the Galactic neighborhood.
