    I can't go cause I got roped into parking bikes on the Marina Green all afternoon. So if you want to map that area bike on over and I'll valet your ride till 7. I'll also bring GoMap!! and make some edits. So you can check that out too.

    I am a newbie ... should I come with a specific place in mind to map? Such as my current neighborhood. Or is there a list of things that need to be done? All I need is my laptop, correct?

      If you can't think of anything else to map, it's always a good idea to start with your own neighborhood. But you can also look over people's shoulders and see if they are working on projects that look more interesting. And yes, your laptop is all you need, we'll get you started with the rest!

    Is there any particular focus for the SF event?

    July 19, 2013

    • Alan M.

      No, I don't think so. Some people have projects in mind, but nothing overall is planned.

      I plan on taking BART from El Cerrito. That's not a car but provides some company on the road.

    So I have never used openstreepmap but I am an undergraduate studying GIS in the area for the next two weeks. Would it be a good idea to come if I don't have very much experience? It sounds like a lot of fun!

      It would be a very good idea to come!

    Had fun at the last #editathon in Sunnyvale. Catch you next time.

    Just making sure that #editathon doesn't require me to be too tech-savvy to attend...I'm pretty new to OSM, but would like to learn more about making edits. Thank you for any feedback!

    • Allison C.

      +1. I'm fairly new to OSM but incredibly curious and excited to contribute!

      This will be a great event for inexperienced editors who want to learn. You can just show up and watch other people edit, if you want, or bring a laptop and there will be experienced contributors to help you along.
