OK, we've had a few micro mapping parties, and mapping pub crawls
since the 1st Party, but this one should be a big 'un. It's part of
the 2 day BarCamp Leeds, and should see sizeable parts of the city
being filled in.
The Saturday is mainly devoted to BarCamp, but we could see mapping
presentations, mini mapping excursions or workshops by barcampers.
(BarCamp Leeds is pretty much full registration wise, but they should
be able to let in a couple of us OSM mappers, who want to be out and
about instead of in the sessions, if we ask nicely),
So the Sunday is where the main action is.
Sunday 17 August
Please sign up at the Eventwax address below, if you would like to come.
Keep an eye on this page and the wiki page for any changes.
Meet at 10:30 - 11a.m, for coffee and wake up, orientation, newbie
introduction and then go out and map.
Meet back for lunch time, more newbie introduction, upload and edit
workshops, and head out for the afternoon. BarCamp ends at lunch, so
we will have the place to ourselves.
Meet back in the afternoon, do editing, and drink beer! Its a party afterall!!
If the weather is bad, my suggestion is to go copy and scan in some
old out of copyright maps from the Leeds Central Library.
