Three Counties Mapping Party
Three Counties Mini-Mapping Party
Apologies to AndyS for re-using the template for the Andover party ;-)
Saturday 17th April 2010
Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire is increasingly well mapped in OpenStreetMap with good coverage of towns, roads and rural rights of way. However, a number of the towns and villages in the border area of the three counties are only about 50% complete, and given their relatively small size, could probably be polished off in a day. With many towns and villages in these counties well-done, this party would plug a useful gap and give a near-complete OSM map of the area; footpath coverage in this area is already notably good.
This mapping party seeks to complete road coverage within the towns and villages of Haslemere, Midhurst, and Liphook. (As an amendment to the original plan, Hindhead, Milford and Witley seem to be practically complete now so there is no longer any need to focus on those areas)There is also scope for completing footpaths in the vicinities of the towns, e.g. Midhurst Common, outside Midhurst.
Meet at Costa Coffee, 42 High Street, Haslemere, Surrey, 9.30am to 10am. map
Getting there / getting about
Haslemere has four trains an hour from Guildford, Woking and London Waterloo. Connections available at Woking for most other parts of central southern England. There are two fast trains and one slow from Portsmouth.
Once there, if you do not have a car and you are going out of Haslemere, there is an hourly bus to Midhurst (on the hour, approximately, from Haslemere) and hourly train to Liphook.
- 9.30am meet
- 10.30am - 6pm map, lunch arrangements TBA due to the scattered nature of the mapping area
