Are you new to editing OpenStreetMap? This event will introduce you to surveying street level geographic features and teach you how to enter them into OpenStreetMap. It's a great event to bring your kids, young or old. It's a great event for non-technical folks who are interested in their community.
The Columbia Heights and southern Petworth neighborhoods (and neighboring Park View) are lacking a lot of businesses and other important places, so let's get them on the map! And there's a lot of new development too. We'll be walking around and putting things on the map, so it'll be a nice opportunity to get outside and explore a bit. Wear good walking shoes! And bring a friend!
We're meeting at the Petworth Public Library, which is a couple blocks from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro (green/yellow) and close to a lot of buses and Bikeshare too.
There's also lots of good coffee, lunch and bar options nearby, so might be a fun way to see a new neighborhood if you haven't been!
