[Apologies in advance if you receive this email multiple times; just trying to make sure everyone who may be interested is aware!]

Calling all map nerds, geo geeks, and the spatially curious: MaptimePDX[1] is here, and we want you to come hack with us!

This Sunday, September 29th from 1pm to 4pm, join us for MaptimePDX, a monthly/bi-weekly hack and learn event for the geographically inclined. We will have spaces for those who are already working on map-related projects (or have ideas in mind!) as well as a guided exercise to learn about creating and contributing to collaborative geoJSON datasets using geojson.io[2] and GitHub[3]. Beginners are very welcome and encouraged to attend! Please bring a laptop if you can.

This inaugural event will be held at Flux[4] as part of WhereCampPDX[5], an unconference that aims to connect geo-enthusiasts, developers, social place hackers, artists, activists, grad students, geographers, earth scientists and anybody else who wants to "know their place." MaptimePDX will be just one of many events going on as part of the conference, and we are so excited and fortunate to be a part of this amazing happening!

We all use maps every day. Let's learn how to make them even better... together.

P.S. If you're at all interested in casual mentoring at the event (a.k.a. answering questions or sharing what you do), please let me know.

When: Sunday, September 29th from 1pm to 4pm
