A mapping party in Oakland, California

What are Mapping Parties?

Mapping parties are events where anyone can come and participate in the OpenStreetMap project. OpenStretMap 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 events are held in a public place, and allow time for discussion, mapping and editing. The event is open to all.

It's fun. It's free. You can help.
