Maps are great. Maps are beautiful! We use them all the time these days: in our cars, on our phones, on our computers. But have you ever asked yourself: 'Why is my favorite cafe / park / XYZ not on this map?', or maybe worse : 'Why does this map make me go here?' You can't do much about that, because other people determine what is on your maps.
But not anymore! Here at OpenStreetMap, we create our own map, wiki-style. And we're doing a pretty good job at it! Hundreds of thousands of people contribute every day. Because it's simple, rewarding and fun! Take a look at the map of Salt Lake City, and ask yourself what you could do to make it even better!
When will you start mapping the world? Join us at our next event!
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.
