What we’re about

Maptime Utrecht is a map hack night hosted by Webmapper ( We meet once every two months on a Wednesday to work on maps, learn about geospatial data, and teach each other the latest cartographic tools.

Maptime is, rather literally, time for making maps. Our 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.

This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops, ongoing projects with a shared goal, and independent/collaborative work time.

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, 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.
