GeoPhilly is pleased to help promote this event organized by Geography graduate students and faculty from Penn State University. Any questions concerning the event can be sent to organizer Sterling Quinn.
Help enhance OpenStreetMap with information about Philadelphia's vibrant urban agriculture and local food resources. This public event will begin with a 30 minute training on OpenStreetMap, followed by individual and group tasks mapping farmers markets, urban gardens, food banks, soup kitchens, and other kinds of valuable layers that you might not find on other maps. There is no cost to participate. Bring a laptop if possible. Free WiFi is provided. If you can't make it in person, you're invited to map online using the OpenStreetMap Food Security page as a guide: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Food_security
