Maptime Miami's Matthew Toro wants to improve our city's Open Street Map (OSM) by doing some bulk imports, starting with the building footprints!

The procedure for executing a bulk OSM import is technically complicated, and must adhere to a set of strict guidelines. One of those guidelines requires that the local mapping community be notified and given ample opportunity to provide input and feedback and be part of the process.

Matthew will be explaining the guidelines for conducting a bulk upload to Miami's OSM, will explain the technical details of the workflow to be implemented, will (hopefully) gain some additional support from the local Miami tech community, and learn about any concerns/issues anyone might have with the plan.

If successful, this could be a huge kickstarter for Miami's relatively underdeveloped OSM.

It's time to start building-up Miami's Open Street Map!
