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/#/).

Exploring Coordinate Precision

Online event

Join us as our very own Patrick McGranaghan takes us through an amazing visual tour of XKCD's comic #2170. We'll get a sense of what all those places after the decimal actually mean during this mappy exploration of different platforms and what they purport to be able to offer in the world of precision (not accuracy ;).

The zoom passcode will be emailed to those who RSVP as attending.
