Mapping parties are events where anyone can come and participate in the OpenStreetMap project.

OpenStreetMap is a free, open source map that can be contributed, edited and used by anyone anywhere!! Improve the hiking trails, locate the bike paths or create the best Pub crawl map ever!!

Mapping parties are social events where experienced and new mappers can meet to share and learn more about the project. The events are generally held in a public place, and allow time for discussion, mapping and editing. The event is open to all.

They are relaxed events and you're supposed to have fun. Often we grab a beer after the event, and this is no exception!

The general run of the day looks like this:
11am - Early lunch: Organizer will be fueling up for the afternoon. Come join us!
12 noon - Introduction to mapping and send experienced mappers out on their way.
12:30 loan out GPS and a short intro on how to use them
12-4 map map map ;)
4 Meet back up at Bier Garten and upload data
4ish and on-- beer time??
