Get well soon chippy!


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 events are generally held in a public place, and allow time for discussion, mapping and editing. The event is open to all.

The Field Trip is meant to bring people together, map an area, and give folks a taste of how maps are made. This Field Trip also has a value of 4 CPD points. (CPD =Continuing Professional Development)

The area is very nice, easy to get to and parts of the town need mapping (See landsat image on the right)
