Next Meetup

August Meetup - Adventure Maps!
Our next meetup will be a show-n'-tell style session of adventure maps! We want to see maps of interesting travels far, wide, introspective and local! Create a what-I-did-this-summer story map, or play with cartography in QGIS to represent a famous journey, or draw a route that hits all the best bars in Denver, or just bring in an admirable adventure map to show everyone! All formats welcome, including hand cartography... go on, you know you want to. The Discovery Wall has a large screen display with web access (access to your githubs and whathaveyou) and the ability to display uploaded files like .ppt, .pdf, .mov, etc (bring a USB drive) ... but you cannot show your laptop screen on it (yet). Get your creative juices flowing and have fun making or picking out an adventure map to share. If you were lacking inspiration for a summer project, now you have it! See you in August, Your Maptime Mile High Organizers

    What we're about

    MaptimeMileHigh is a map hack night for the greater Denver area. We meet regularly to work on maps, learn about geospatial data, and teach each other the latest cartographic tools. Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. 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, 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! Check out our site at http://maptime.io/milehigh and follow us on twitter @MaptimeMileHigh (https://twitter.com/maptimemilehigh). If you're new to the group, check out our intro presentation (http://maptimemilehigh.github.io/presentations/intro/#/).

    MaptimeMileHigh is a local chapter of the world-wide Maptime movement! Check out Maptime HQ at maptime.io (http://maptime.io/).
