What we're about

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.

More info about us on osm.be (http://osm.be/) . We're active on twitter (https://twitter.com/osm_be). There's an infrequent newsletter (http://eepurl.com/bZoZlj) to stay up to date.

OpenStreetMap op Newline - Getting Started (+ Using OsmAnd + Hacking OsmAnd)

In this workshop, an introduction to OpenStreetMap is given - perfect if you are interested in OSM but never got started or only touched it briefly and got a little confused. We have a look at what OSM exactly is, why it is awesome and how to contribute. Afterwards you'll know the basics to effectively use it, add data and getting data out with overpass. I'll also shortly touch upon the tools needed to get a libre and free map on your website - no creditcard needed. After this workshop, I'm organizing a second workshop about OsmAnd - navigation on your smartphone with OpenStreetMap and how to modify the thing to your personal needs. All information can be found here: https://www.meetup.com/OpenStreetMap-Belgium/events/260725736/ This workshop is part of newline - a yearly conference by Hackerspace Ghent. All information on newline can be found here: http://hackerspace.gent/landing/newline.php As this is part of a bigger conference, don't worry if you forgot to RSVP here. The workshop will be given in English (unless everyone attending turns out to speak Dutch)

OpenStreetMap op Newline - OsmAnd introduction and modification

In this workshop, an introduction to the app OsmAnd is given. I'll show you the basics of working with this When this is done, we'll get out the computers and try to modify OsmAnd to your personal needs. I'll explain how to change rendering and routing parameters - the app will be just for you. (E.g. allow routing over 'de knippen' where you have access, avoid roads with cobblestones, avoid unlit roads, ...) **Important: OsmAnd works both on Android and iPhone. Modifying OsmAnd only works on Androids though - unless your iPhone is jailbroken** This workshop is part of newline - a yearly conference by Hackerspace Ghent. All information on newline can be found here: http://hackerspace.gent/landing/newline.php As this is part of a bigger conference, don't worry if you forgot to RSVP here.
