This group is all about OpenStreetMap, the best and most popular webmapping project out there! Meet other OpenStreetMappers in these meetups and learn how to contribute to or use OpenStreetMap.
This group aims to help schedule events anywhere in Belgium. If you want to organize something in your city, just suggest a Meetup there!
Most of our events are just social gatherings, where experienced mappers get to know each other, new mappers can learn from each other, and potential data users can get support. But we're also into organizing mapathons, mapping parties and hackathons.
Join us at Open Belgium (https://2021.openbelgium.be/) for a discussion led by Jonathan Beliën, Joost Schouppe and Pieter Vander Vennet on current hot topics in the Belgian OpenStreetMap community:
- What more can we do to open up streetview imagery? - How to deal with the battle of the paths, where suddenly everyone cares about the paths mapped on their land being mapped in OSM? - Where to go next in our relationships with local government (tool MapComplete)? - How can we speed up integrating official data (GRB / PICC import, road completion)? - What's happening in the OpenStreetMap Foundation and how is it relevant to Belgium?
Well it's been a while since we've been able to have a real meetup, and it might take another while till we can have the next real meetup. So we started a new tradition: a bimonthly virtual meeting! Bring your own beer, and prepare to get to know your fellow mapper. If you want to show something specific, let us know and we'll make some sort of agenda. If you're just discovering OpenStreetMap, join and ask us anything. Expect just informal chatting - focused on the wonderful world of mapping what you know :)
