Diary write up by Nick Allen

"Antlers, what a good idea. If you want to break the ice & chat with a bunch of nice people, try wearing antlers. ... I'm certain that the Missing Maps Team deserve a brilliant Christmas for all the hard work they put in making these events run so smoothly - It's a pleasure to work with you guys & Thank You."

Mapping remotely

You are more than welcome, as always to join us remotely in helping to fill the gaps in the missing maps.

The tutorial for new mappers will start at approximately 1830 and will be broadcast via a link TBC.

Mapping tasks

Tasks for the night will include:


The following links will help you get started and should answer a lot of technical questions you may have:

The HOT Tasking Manager

Mapping with iD (web-based and simpler, but slower and not as fun)

Mapping with JOSM (JAVA software needed, but faster and way more fun)


If you want to get in touch, please do so with the hashtag #MissingMapsHelp and, if they are free, someone will get in touch.
