MaptimePDX is hosting a co-meetup with Portland’s Accessibility and User Experience group & Code for Portland! We will discuss how to improve environmental accessibility and inclusion by including accessibility geographic information in OpenStreetMap (OSM) an open-source data platform for spatial data, often termed the Wikipedia of maps.

Location aware technology has the ability to provide useful and timely information based on your location - join us as we start the conversation about what types of data should be included for people with disabilities.

Bring your laptops and questions as this will be a hands-on Maptime where you will learn to edit OpenStreetMap.

Beginner Mappers Welcome!
