Mapathon/US Spring Mapathon 2017
The Spring 2017 OSM US Mapathon events will take place in the weekend of April 15-16.
Looking to join a local Mapathon? Just check the list of locations below. If there is nothing in your area yet, you can email to the community (see Mailing lists) or go on Slack and ask in the #local channel if there's something cooking that is not already listed. Or perhaps you'd like to help organize? Keep reading!
Do you want to run your own Mapathon? You can! It's fun and not hard to do. To get started, have a look at some of the other Mapathons listed below for inspiration. Decide on a place and time, and perhaps a theme, and start spreading the word through Meetup and / or other local event listings! Need help? Email the board at firstname.lastname@example.org, talk to fellow organizers on the #local Slack channel (sign up here if you're not yet a Slack team member) or ask on the talk-us mailing list!
No specific theme, but here's some ideas to give your Mapathon a specific purpose:
- Map Your Local Public Garden / Park
- Old Import Tidying (see for example the Old Aerodromes challenge on MapRoulette)
- Map a challenged part of town
- Invite local government folks to talk about GIS data and tell them about OSM.
