What we’re about

Maptime's back!

Right now, we're aiming for a quarterly event focusing on 2-3 quality presentations from folks just like you in the mapping space. Events will be held at locations in Oakland and SF.

Maptime's mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies.

Inspiration for Maptime comes from both hack nights and knitting circles. Both are models of spaces for people to create and learn together. Our goal is to provide this space with an open heart and without pretension. You can bring your own projects to work on, or just hang out and socialize or ask questions. Some people are experts, and some people are just getting started, but all of us are learning, so why not do it together?
Maptime is hands-on, so don't forget to bring your laptop! All skill levels are welcome. Newbies are especially welcome!
