OpenStreetMap is the Wikipedia of maps. It's a global, collaborative effort by thousands of volunteer contributors to create a free map of the world. The OpenStreetMap #editathon is a mapping party that takes place in cities all over the United States, where we'll work together to edit OpenStreetMap. On Saturday, July 20th, we're hosting the mapping party in DC.
We'll have mappers of all skill levels present, so whether you are brand new or a seasoned veteran, come on out to the OpenGov Hub with your favorite mapping project in mind. Closer to the event, we'll also have a collection of ongoing projects for you to pick from, if you're looking for ideas.
All you'll need to bring is a computer, we'll have wireless, drinks and snacks for you here. Some people also prefer to edit with a mouse, so BYO if this is you.
To make things easier on our building's front desk, RSVP here if you'll join us.
