We had a well attended meeting last night with 8 of us. A good mix, of
active local mappers, old hands (smsm1 ;-) ), relative newcomers and
interested map lurkers. There was enough enthusiasm to do it again, and
a general view that a monthly was fine, so I'll suggest a time & place
for early April soon.
A representative of Pedals came along, and I got the impression that
he'll recommend stronger backing from them for OSM and CycleStreets. I
was very pleased to link up with a high profile local advocacy group.
Marcus, David (Pedals) and Laura (lolkins) all emphasised that they
would feel more comfortable editing if there was an opportunity for some
guidance. Marcus represented the Nottingham Hackspace which I didn't
even know existed, and suggested their space near Nottingham Station
might be a good venue for a mapping party/training event. This obviously
has great potential.
So more successful than I hoped by far, and lots to think about too.
I'll write up something more detailed on my blog.
Thanks to everyone who came. See you all soon!
