State of the Map Scotland 2015/Day 4
Welcome Openstreetmap Community Day
This is day 4 of State of the Map Scotland 2015.
Saturday 3rd October 2015 10am-4pm. It will be held at the Informatics Forum of Edinburgh University. Our most relaxed day, aimed at talks about the process of mapping, local groups and community mapping projects.
The talks/discussions are usually in time sets of 30 minutes this includes setting up and questions so the talks are usually aimed at 20 minutes. Each day we have a section called Lightning talks. This is where people can introduce short talks for 5 mins, they can also ask questions of the crowd about any subject or ask if anyone would like to talk off conference about a particular subject.
The conference is 'semi-Unconference' style - so there will be both planned/invited talks and time for lightning/unscheduled talks. We will do our best to make time for anyone who wishes to speak. There will also be space to exhibit posters.
