Group Survey Walk

Sometimes mapping with other people is more fun than mapping alone. 

We are going to meetup before the OSM birthday party and do some group surveying.  The idea is that we will divide ourselves into small groups and do walking surveys of an area.

We will focus on a few areas with street level retail collecting the names shops on the street, addresses, parking, and check to see if the data already on the map is still correct.

I will announce the exact location based on the RSVP responses I get.  It probably won't be in the downtown core but will be TTC accessible most likely in the west end Toronto.

    If anyone was planning on taking the subway, the Yonge/university line is closed this weekend south of bloor. The Bloor Danforth line that runs to Kipling will still be running.

    We are going to meet at the Passenger Pickup/Drop Off at the Kipling Subway station. I suspect that there is a lot of stuff that can be mapped within walking distance of here.

    See

    http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=43.63698&mlon=-79.53712#map=17/[masked]/[masked] for the location I plan on meeting at.

    I'll be wearing an OpenStreetMap shirt and will be holding a clipboard of fieldpapers maps. Bring a pen and clipboard/pad (something to write your notes on). If you have a hand-held GPS feel free to bring it. If your into photo-mapping bring your camera.

    If your not going to be attending please update the RSVP/let me know so we don't wait for you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
