An update on this ... we will be meeting at 1pm on both Saturday and
Sunday, anyone is welcome to attend either or both events. Steve has
agreed to give a short talk up front about OpenStreetMap and what they
have been up to, which I think will be really interesting. We're
planning to meet at my loft in LoDo (above the Wynkoop Brewing
Company), and will retire to the Wynkoop afterwards. You are welcome
to come just for the talk if you're short on time, but we encourage
people to do a bit of mapping too!
Here is more information from Steve:
OpenStreetMap.org, the free wiki world map is coming to Denver this
weekend 19/20th July for a mapping party:
OpenStreetMap allows anyone to edit a map of the world, much like
wikipedia allows anyone to edit a world encyclopaedia. A mapping party
is an informal daytime event where volunteers of all walks of life
help map an area collaboratively. GPS units and instruction is
provided, together with help using the editing tools and ways to
collect the data. For more about mapping parties, see:
The venue and time are TBA but expect around 1pm in downtown denver.
It will begin with a short presentation on OpenStreetMap and then you
are invited to go mapping. Mapping some streets, footpaths or what
interests you can take as little as an hour including being shown how
to use the GPS and software.
Afterward, we will retire to a local bar and you're welcome to join
Please check the wiki page for up to date information:
If you have any questions please let me know, and please sign up on
the wiki page if you plan to come.
