It's high time we had a London H.O.T. event, so I've worked with Ivan from MSF, on planning the "London HOT Congo Mapathon":


Date:      Saturday 3rd May
Time:      10:30 until 18:00
Location:  The Open Data Institute, London, UK.
           3rd Floor. 65 Clifton Street. EC2A 4JE (map)
Sign up:   http://london-hot-congo.eventbrite.co.uk/

Hopefully it will be a pretty big event. I want to attract people from the humanitarian scene as well as experienced OpenStreetMappers to act as teachers. Best of all would be people who are both (that's you Hotties!)  Please pass on the details to anyone who might be interested in attending.

It should be worth travelling for, if you can get to London. I'm very excited to say we've got Jorieke Vyncke and Shoaib Burq travelling here for the event. The mapping will relate to MSF's work in the Congo, and in particular there's a plan to get people digitising Field Papers data which Jorieke was involved in collecting recently.
