We know we’ve been quiet, but that ends now! Maptime Vancouver is back on track, with some exciting new changes. First of all, we are happy to announce that Joey Lee is joining our organizing team, bringing plenty of mapping experience, fresh ideas and a patent smile to the mix.
We’ve also changed locations: Maptime will now take place in Railtown, in an office space generously opened to us by Mark at Konkurito. Thanks Mark!
While we’ve been lazying around, we’ve noticed that you’ve been doing quite the opposite. You’ve been patient, and for that we are grateful. Our group has grown, and there are now 177 Maplovers in our group. That’s exciting! To bring you light in the fall, we plan to kick off the #MaptimeYVR season with:
What is Maptime?
What skills can we share? / What projects can we make?
Walk away with your first web map!
Throughout the coming weeks we will post our schedule for the next little while, so stay tuned for more meetups!
As always, beginners are very welcome at Maptime, and we will always take the time to answer your questions. Remember your laptop, and prepare for some mapping fun!
Ring the buzzer and we will let you in. If you need directions, email us beforehand, or tweet us @maptimeYVR/@leejoeyk/@dshkol on the spot, and we will help you navigate
If you can't make it in person tonight, feel free to join the google hangouts link here:
We've also added the link to our MaptimeYVR page:
