About Maptime

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!

    I'm working with the wait function in Leaflet, as outlined by mourner at https://github.com/CloudMade/Leaflet/commit/a154f08415cd69b822d5c778b88a5d7dd06fcc13 --

    locate: function(/*Object*/ options) {

    this._locationOptions = options = L.Util.extend({
    watch: true,

    Does anybody in MapTime have any experience with this function in Leaflet? Bruce

    I'm interested in news maps and data visualizations as computer-assisted reporting, and mapping services like EDIS, the Emergency and Disaster Information Services.

    Any thoughts on topics for this week? This week on the geo front this week, I'm personally focused on getting maps into the IPython notebook: http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/ipython-dev/2014-January/013019.html. So if it's open hack night, that's likely what I'll be working on. Would love to talk to others about this topic.
