This is a meetup group for those in the Phoenix area who like maps, GIS, OpenStreetMap, cartography and anything in between. You can follow us on twitter at @phxgeo where we have discussion and post announcements between meetups.
OSM Mapathons for the Phoenix metro are back! Meet us at the ASU Map and Geospatial Hub in Tempe on Friday, April 26th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. We will have wireless access so bring a laptop with a mouse to learn how to contribute to the community by adding content to OpenStreetMap! Let's continue to put PHXGeo on the OSM map! Food will also be provided, most likely via Subway catering platters so please make sure to RSVP if you plan to attend, and if you have dietary restrictions you can message Scott privately.

Have questions about OpenStreetMap? Contact Scott or join the OSM US Slack server where there are plenty of friendly mapping folk that'd be happy to help you learn to contribute: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/List_of_OSM_centric_Slack_workspaces
Since this is the second recent PHXGeo Mapathon, and first time at ASU, the event may be a little rough around the edges. Feel free to suggest your ideas to help make this seasonally reoccurring event more of something you and others want to go to.
