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

When: 10:00 - 14:00 Saturday 19th September 2009

Where: Pelican Park, Clontarf, Redcliffe

The Plan

Mapping (if you want to):

10:00 - 10:30 : Meet at Pelican Park to plan mapping (look for OSM Australia poster)

10:30 - 13:00 : Map your area


13:00 - 14:00 : BBQ at Pelican Park (look for OSM Australia poster)

Depending on interest, some BBQ supplies and non-alcoholic drinks may be provided. If you want something else, you'll need to BYO.

The Map

If you are up to it, please help us improve the maps around Redcliffe. You can add anything that you think is important, but some of the types of things that other mappers like to collect are:

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

However, if you aren't sure what to do, or you don't have the time, feel free to just turn up and socialise at the BBQ. For people new to mapping, There will be a short demo of some field mapping after the BBQ, if needed.

If you want a printable map suitable for making notes on, you can get one from .
