Here is the final scheme for the mapping party on Sunday April 18.
- 9u45am till 10am: for people who like that, we gather at the railway
station of Deinze. This is not explicitly necessary: I have made a cake
diagram, so people who prefer that can start at another moment can just pick
their piece and go on the road. Here you can take a peek at it:
Of course they should tell me well ahead about their plans to avoid double
work! Some pieces are more fit for exploration by bike: e.g. Petegem aan de
Leie has a lot typical bike short-cuts (not on google maps of course) Other
stuff can be done by car - more rural areas - but personal I prefer doing
everything by bike. I hope that every-one brings his own bike! I also
experimented with export of the cake diagram: you can find the result on
http://users.edpnet.be/kknecht/gmapsupp.img* *(for garmin) and
http://users.edpnet.be/kknecht/deinze.osm contains roughly the same data but
via GPS babel you can export it yourself to your own preferred format.
- 10am till 1pm: we go on the road!
- 1pm-2pm: we have lunch, since we do the data processing at the de Ceder (a
bit outside of the center in Astene (Parijsestraat), we might as well gather
there. In the cafe there you can only get drinks there so why not bring your
own lunch package? We can talk a bit and make sure we don't start thirsty
- 2pm-5pm: hide behind the computer screens: please try to bring your own
It would very nice if every-one willing to join, sends me an email to
confirm, with some info on how they think to get in Deinze and how to
explore the area. Do you have a laptop? May be I can split the cake in more
pieces do more accurate sub-division? Planning is everything! Please, also
give me feedback about the planning: I rather prefer it now then to here you
complaining on the day itself!
I would have liked to get hold of the trackers which are managed by OSM
belgium but although I have asked twice and offer to pick theme up, I did
not any reaction. A pity: some people are willing to join but have no
