Fall #Editathon

Call[masked] for access to Tableau!

The Fall #Editathon is being hosted by Tableau Software in Fremont. A big thanks to Tableau for hosting.

The two day event will focus on cleaning up road alignment and road additions in Washington State. Since much of rural Washington is untouched, we will clean up road alignment using Bing satellite images and TIGER 2012 road data. 

Each day will start off with instructions on how to edit OpenStreetMap using either iD or JOSM. For the remaining time we will each grab a section of the state to clean up. Fortunately we have a great tool to help. maproulette.org/battlegrid identifies the worst areas in the state. 

Come both days or just one.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.

    I loved getting the chance to meet and talk with other mappers, hope to do it again in the future.

    Great first day! Thanks again to Tableau Software for hosting. Nice turnout with a mix of new and experienced mappers. Tomorrow we are back fixing roads in Washington State. Not too late to sign up. As Chase's comment suggested, bring your laptop and join in on the fun.

    Here are some important details:
    --We're planning to map from 1-4pm both days. Please bring your own laptops!
    --Enter on the North side of the bldg (next to the Gym). We'll put up a sign with a number to call if the doors are locked.
    --Street parking is difficult. If you're driving, the easiest option is probably the pay lot *outside* the East side of the bldg.
    See you there!

    I can only stop by for a few hours on Sunday. But I will bring a resource that shows the roads around Denny Creek and all it's off roads.

    I'm hoping to make it down from Vancouver, but I could really use a place to stay so I don't have to check in to a hotel and can stay the full two days. Anyone able to help?

    I'll be out of town most of Saturday, but I'll try to make it on Sunday.

    Hee hee hee. The (map) link points to the wrong place. (And it points to the wrong *map* entirely. :D )

    I just invited the Code for Seattle folks. I'm assuming the CUGOS folks know?

    Thanks to Tableau Software we have a great location in Fremont to host this event. The two days will be spent cleaning up roads in Washington State. Most of rural Washington hasn't been touched. With the help of maproulette, we can focus on the worst of the areas. We will start off each day with instruction on how to edit using either iD or JOSM. For the rest of the time, we will each focus on a different part of the state.

    For location, we could use the Jigsaw Renaissance classroom. There isn't a Sounders / Seahawks / Mariners game that day, so parking should be available nearby. There's no limit on time. Any downtown bus route passes within a reasonable distance.

    Seattle Central Library is another option downtown -- it has tables on the 5th Ave level where the coffee cart is. Unlike branch libraries, use of meeting rooms isn't free. Bellevue Regional Library has several small rooms, does have a parking lot, and reasonable bus service. But both libraries close at 6pm.

    I think I've already pitched the Lake Forest Park mall a couple of times. Upstairs are lots of tables -- a few have power nearby, and there's wifi from the Lake Forest Park Library on the lower floor. The library does have a meeting room, but the upstairs area has the Honey Bear Bakery. Mmmm...

    Or...draw a random lat lon in the general area.
