Needs a location


In May we are planning to run a geospatial hackday to explore how to create better maps and tools that will help us understand more about living, working in and doing business in Bath & North East Somerset.

This is the second of two evening events to gather input from the local community. In this first event we're keen to reach out to local community groups.

We know that community groups often need better information about the local area. For example to help identify potential spots for community growing spaces, or to understand more about our cultural heritage.

Local groups often need better maps and tools that can help them reach out to residents and others that live and work in the area, for example to share more about the services they provide. Or to engage with the council to help discuss and highlight issues like the accessibility of the built environment.

In this meetup we'd like to hear from local groups about useful ways that we might collect and use data about our local area for the benefit of the broader community.
