I know! The tickets are going like hot cakes! ;) 

It's because Serge gave such a great presentation last month.  The masses want to see more fancy map animations!

Yes. There should be more information from the School of Data in the coming days as well as OSM mapping of Bangladesh for the purposes of resiliency through the Open Cities Project.  (This is the same bucket of work from the Nepal mapping a couple of months back.) I know there's a google group that's started -- Sara, do you have the info for that?

Starting in July Ill probably start holding a regular tracing Tuesday event where we can all dive into some of this work, but that's tentative at the moment.  Would love to have you involved!

Ohh! And Open Cities will be presenting at the next GeoNYC event on June 17th. Sign up now! Tickets are going fast, and we'll have to cap it at ~100.


Best, 
Alyssa.

I think the organisers were planning to keep this running as a longer-term project... have already signed up to continue with it myself.

Hi all!

This past weekend, a group in NYC came together with teams across the world to help work on data acquisition and mapping of garment factories in Dhaka.  It was a humble start of tracing building footprints of a much longer OSM initiative (hopefully continued through the Open Knowledge Foundation and the Open Cities Project

Check out the outcomes and background here: 

If you have any questions or want to help in the future, just let us know. 

Best,
