Mapping party

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. 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.

It's fun. It's free. You can help.

  • If you own a GPS or laptop computer, please bring it along. If not, we will have GPS units to loan.
  • Also check your mobile, if it has GPS or AGPS, then try to use it. Usage of GPS will be free of cost, but AGPS may have recurring cost, and Mobile Service Provider will charge for that. AGPS should be able to work as GPS.

Mapping objectives

To add more (no `more', rather we will start adding as there is none, as of April 09, 2011) points-of-interest to the city map as well as tackle areas that still need mapping.
