What is Maptime?

Maptime is a regular map hack night in Berlin. We meet to work on maps, learn about geospatial data, and teach each other the latest cartographic tools.

Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies.

This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops, ongoing projects with a shared goal, and independent/collaborative work time.

Inspiration for Maptime comes from both hack nights and knitting circles. Both are models of spaces for people to create and learn together. Our goal is to provide this space with an open heart and without pretension. You can bring your own projects to work on, or just hang out and socialize or ask questions. Some people are experts, and some people are just getting started, but all of us are learning, so why not do it together?

Maptime is hands-on, so don't forget to bring your laptop! All skill levels are welcome. Newbies are especially welcome!

Was ist Maptime?

Maptime ist ein regelmäßiges Zusammentreffen von Menschen, die Lust haben, zusammen an Webmaps zu arbeiten und die mehr über die Werkzeuge zur Herstellung von digitalen Karten lernen möchten. Im Zentrum steht das “Machen”, also das gemeinsame Lernen und Arbeiten an konkreten Projekten. Deshalb bitte den Laptop nicht vergessen!

Maptime ist ein offenes Format, das gegenseitigen Austausch in einem geschützten Rahmen und ohne professionellen Druck ermöglichen soll. Die Idee von Maptime stammt von ein paar netten Leuten von Stamen Design aus San Francisco. Maptime Gruppen gibt es mittlerweile in über 10 Städten in den USA. Mehr Infos gibt's auf maptime.io.

Wer kann teilnehmen?

Maptime richtet sich an alle Leute, die Lust haben, mehr über Webmaps zu lernen, also auch explizit an Anfänger, die noch nie etwas mit Kartografie und Programmierung zu tun hatten. Daneben sollen aber auch erfahrene Praktiker aus den verschiedensten Bereichen (Geografie/Geoinformation, Stadtplanung, Design, Informatik, Datenjournalismus, etc.) angesprochen werden, die Lust haben, ihr Wissen zu teilen und mehr über die anderen Bereiche zu lernen. Und an jeden, der Lust hat, dabei Spaß zu haben.

Bei Fragen einfach eine Email an maptimeberlin@gmail.com oder @maptimeBER auf Twitter folgen.
