OpenStreetMap Map-a-thon for Food Resources in Philadelphia

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

This event is being initiated by Geography graduate students and faculty from Penn State University.

This is event is accessible via the Erie stop on the Broad Street line. Learn more about the Nicetown-Tioga Branch Library.

    Hi,

    I was curious. Do you have to be familiar with GIS to participate in this event? Thanks

      David - There's no need to have any prior experience with GIS or any special software. At the event I will demo how to edit OpenStreetMap directly from your web browser. You can visit openstreetmap.org and watch the editing tutorial if you want to get a head start.
