We decided it would be fun to get together and all collaborate on a mapping project. We will have a project for those wanting to learn OpenStreetMap (OSM) or in need of a project, however, feel free to bring a project of your own to work on in a nerd environment (I mean, community setting).
Don't forget your own power cord, mouse, and laptop!
If you do not have an OpenStreetMap account, feel free to do that ahead of time by watching this YouTube and following the instructions: https://www.youtube.com/embed/HDPvn1yg64w
- Welcome & Refreshments
- Intro to OpenStreetMap
- Ways to edit OpenStreetMap
- Break into groups to map
- Regroup to discuss challenges and ease of use and what future Maptime meetups could cover.
If you are feeling extra ambitious, feel free to look at the OpenStreetMap beginner's guide: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Beginners%27_guide
