Mapping parties are community events targetted at getting a specific area mapped in a day or a weekend. You come along, are loaned a GPS unit and shown how to use it (it's easy!) and you go out mapping an area of your choosing. Then you come back and are shown how to get that data in to the map.

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

So come along and learn how to use a GPS, learn how to map and have some fun!

I'd love to come but I'm in the UK. I've been remotely improving the map of Dallas and Fort Worth by tracing Yahoo Aerial Imagery. I get to use lots of map features I don't get to use in the UK. I've concentrated on motorway junctions( and got hopelessly lost with all the new HOV lanes!), the rail system - seem to have got hooked on marshalling yards - and airports - oh and getting rid of all those pesky motorway-link roads dotted about just about everywhere. I'll look forward to your improvements. I hope I've got things more or less OK from what I've been doing. I'll continue as before unless you want me to stop and let the local mappers take over. Any how keep in touch - I've kind of got attached to the place!
