This will be a friendly meetup of openstreetmappers in Brisbane, hopefully with a few interested newbies thrown into the mix.

When: Saturday 20th March 2010

Where: Logan, Queensland

The Plan

Please feel free to call David on 0407 151 912 on the day if you can't find us.

09:00-10:00 Logan Gardens Park, Civic Parade: BBQ Breakfast, plan surveying

I (DavidDean) will bring some sausages, bread, bacon and eggs according to how many say they are coming. Feel free to bring your own food if you want something different.

10:00-13:00 Survey your area

13:00-15:00 Logan City Tavern: Lunch, maybe some online-mapping.

We are hoping to have some internet connectivity, so if you want to do some group online mapping, bring your laptop after lunch.

The Map

Please help us map Logan and the surrounding areas. You can add anything that you think is important, but some of the types of things that other mappers like to collect are:

  • missing streets (paved and unpaved)
  • street names
  • missing street facilities (traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, speed bumps, etc.)
  • missing streets and paths
  • missing parks/schools/etc
  • missing amenities (water fountains, toilets, playgrounds, seats, shelters, etc.)
  • shops/restaurants/pubs

However, if you aren't sure what to do, please let me know, and I'll be glad to get you started.

If you want a printable map suitable for making notes on, you can make them using the excellent Walking Papers.
