Trivandrum mapping party 12 dec
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. As we know, SciPy.in is taking place, during this time, more people would be visiting the place. This would be thus an opportunity for those people to join hands for the common good.
Thiruvananthapuram, also known as Trivandrum, has excellent satellite coverage, so mapping can be done even by people without GPS. We can of course check the satellite data and fine tune the map using GPS devices. We realize that there are a handful of people who are interested in mapping.
It's fun. It's free. You can help.
