When: June 27,[masked]:30 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: We will be hosting another Oakland Mapping party at the Rock, Paper, Scissors Collective space. Mike Migurski from Stamen Design will be leading his paper mapping (walking-papers.org) project again, showing attendees how to map using geo-referenced paper maps. This is a really exciting, low tech way to get out mapping.
As usual, we will have GPS units available to borrow throughout the weekend.
This event is Saturday and Sunday, June 27th and 28th, from 12:30pm to 5:30pm.
The Bay Area map is really starting to look good, and it could argued that it is one of the best OSM maps in the US. Lets keep the momentum going. We are seeing more and more participants in our mapping community, so join us in meeting fellow mappers!
Also check out this great Oakland crime map (Mike works on this as well), that is based off of OSM data: http://oakland.crimespotting.org/
This event will be a great time to discuss for favorite mapping ideas, experiences and wishes.
