Shotts Mapping party
Join us as we map the woods, parks, shops, paths, roads, monuments and green spaces around Shotts. Help create a free map, displaying the natural and built assets of the town of Shotts. We will teach you how to survey, edit and upload to OpenStreetMap website. We hope to create a map to showcase the facilities and points of interest in the area and help improve access and management in the future.
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 event is open to all.
It's fun. It's free. You can help!
This map party is being supported by The Central Scotland Forest Trust / Central Scotland Green Network.
