What do I need to know to host a virtual event?

  • Design your event friendly to newcomers, make sure there's someone to greet first timers and explain the fundamentals of OpenStreetMap and show them the first steps of editing and surveying.
  • The rule is simple: anything you commit to OpenStreetMap, should contain the hashtag #osmgeoweek in the comment.
  • Use MapRoulette or the Battle Grid to jump start editing!
  • Your event can be an outside surveying event or an inside editing event.
  • The location should have fast internet and a place to sit for everyone. Remind attendees to bring a computer, mouse, and any other devices you'll need for your event.
  • Collect name and email from attendees, keep them to yourself. This information is to send on a feedback survey and only for survey purposes.
