Meeting at a pub in Stratford
Beers by the docks at Canning Town

The London Mapping Party Marathon 2008 was a past event series. A series of weekly mini mapping parties to be help in the London area over summer 2008. They generally started at a station in the area that needs to be mapped, and ended at a pub in the local area. It's not just about naming the streets, but adding points of interest too. We decided to move to weekly mapping parties, alternating each week between the north and south of the river.

It was so successful that we decided to carry on with social pub meet-ups during the off-season (London/Winter 2008-9 Random Pub Meetup) and repeat the same idea for 2009 (London/Summer 2009 Mapping Party Marathon)
