US-wide mapping party

We would like to open up a space for mapping in coordination with a US-wide event happening in several locations (in San Francisco, Sunnyvale, Denver, and DC so far) on January 26th during the day.

Come along with us to work on fixing the map via Map Roulette and any other mapping that you would be interested in doing. Don't worry if you don't have much experience--we should have enough experienced mappers to help get everyone up to speed. Please bring a laptop and sign up for an account through openstreetmap.org beforehand.

We plan on meeting at the privately-owned public space at 153 E 53 St (at Lex). You can enter at the corner of 53rd and Lex, down through the outdoor plaza, or on 53rd, down an escalator. There are free tables, wifi, and restrooms.

    Great meet up - and exraordinary folks - thanks to Serge for a superb overview of the development of OSM - on one leg! And the best ever OSM tutorial from the guru from Connecticut!

    It was very nice to meet everyone today. Thanks especially to Eric for answering all of my questions about editing the maps. (or at least pointing me to the wiki :)

    We are at a circular table behind the main seating area. One of us is wearing an orange surveying vest.

    I'll be participating remotely from like 8 blocks away. Weird but unavoidable!

    For folks who might want to help fix the NYC map, I'll be bringing some tools for mapping the surrounding area and folks will be able to instruct you on how to do data collection and contribute directly.

    Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday. I've added a location--the privately-owned public space under 153 E 53rd St at Lexington. Please check the event for more details.
