Maptime: open hack night!

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!

    Hi, do we have to havece mapping software on our laptops to participate?

      No, Cathy, you don't need to have anything installed in advance. Most of the tutorials we use are web-based, or use open-source software that can be downloaded quickly. Only rarely do you need to have software installed in advance, and we will announce that clearly before those maptime events.

    Hi everybody! We are so excited to see all the new people who RSVPed for this meetup, so we decided to remove the 20-person cap for this night only! That means things will be really crowded in the Stamen space, but we wanted to make sure everyone gets a chance to start off the new year with lots of happy mappy momentum.

    Because things will be so crowded, we might spend more time than usual getting to know each other and networking. But if you want to have some time to sit and get some mapping done, we will have plenty of time for that too.

    See you all on Wednesday!
