It's mapping season! The sun's come out, so it's time for those crazy OpenStreetMap people to start their "mapping parties" again. If you fancy a quick bit of urban outdoor action after work, why not join us?
OpenStreetMap is an editable map of the whole world, which is being built largely from scratch by the community and released with an open content license.
This Wednesday we'll be aiming to gather some POI data around Oxford Street, before meeting in the pub! It is open to everyone whether you are already an active member of the openstreetmap community or just curious to find out more about the project. Have a go at mapping (e.g. with a pencil & a printout), or just come along and join us in the pub!
We're meeting in the pub at around 8pm. Newcomers welcome! When you arrive in the pub look out for people with GPS units/ maps. Also make a note of this: Contact: Shaun McDonald 07879610632
We'll be arriving in the area at around 6:30 to do a quick bit of mapping. If you're interested in joining in with that, check the details on the wiki page
