What are mapping parties?

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.

Optional RSVP here (watch this space)

  • Weather: Heavy rain cancels, but I'll be at the Almaden carpool location and then trail head to make the final determination with my co-leader.

In case of a rain-out, I can still be at the Peet's Coffee at 2:30 PM to demonstrate OSM or upload any data. Give me a call on my cell 408-242-5092 if you would like to meet.
