Come one day or both!
What is this all about?
OpenStreetMap is the wiki-style map of everything. A complete suite of Open Source software tools to create and use maps in creative and unexpected ways. And the map data is Free (as in speech) too!
Mapping parties are events where anyone can come along and join in improving the free world map of everything. We show you how to collect data (survey) and get the data in to OpenStreetMap. Once you put the data in to OpenStreetMap you or anybody around the world, can use the map in interesting and creative ways.
We have an event coming up in Pittsburgh on Saturday and Sunday November 15 - 16, 2008. They are informal events with no explicit time commitment and often a social element / beer afterward. You should join us.
Bring your GPS and laptop to participate fully, or borrow a GPS from us. We'll have a few to loan.
It's fun. It's Free. You can help.
RSVP!!! Let us know that you are coming and which day(s)
