We run mapping parties which are events where anyone can come along, we lend a GPS and show you how to go out and do some mapping and get the data in to OpenStreetMap. We have one coming up in New York 28/29th June. They are informal events with no explicit time commitment and often a social element / beer afterward.
* When: 20 - 21 September, 2008
o Saturday 10am-4. Turn up at any point, but earlier the better.
+ Saturday 10:30 Introduction to OpenStreetMap for beginners.
o Sunday 11am-2
+ Sunday 11:30 Introduction to OpenStreetMap for beginners
* Where: Green Map System's location is 220 E 4th Street, between Avenues A & B in NYC's East Village. The building has 5 front doors, Green Map's is further east, with a big green logo. Ring the bottom bell, and you will be buzzed up to the 3rd floor.
* After: Retire to local bar (TBA)
Rain Date? No rain outs. If the weather is bad we'll have indoor mapping acitivities. Bring your laptop and gps.
