** About OpenStreetMap
OpenStreetMap is a collaboratively built free map of the world, with simple wiki-like editing; think ‘Wikipedia’, but for maps. The result is highly detailed digital maps, created and edited by local communities, that are free to reproduce without the normal commercial restrictions. It's a fun project to get involved with; you'll discover how maps are made and uncover the geographical secrets of your neighbourhood.

Volunteers from all around Brisbane have already begun mapping the roads, footpaths and cycleways across the city, but now we need your help to improve our map by adding street and building details and amenities such as restaurants, parks, playgrounds and shops.

** The Event
Participants will be welcome to map however and wherever they want, but here are a few suggestions for things that other mappers like to collect:

Missing streets, footpaths and cycleways Missing street names Missing building details Missing street facilities (traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, speed bumps, etc.) Missing reserves, parks, schools and child-care centres Missing amenities (water fountains, toilets, playgrounds, seats, shelters, etc.) Details of shops/restaurants/pubs

However, if you aren't sure what you can do, we'll be happy to provide ideas and help get you started. If you have a GPS device, including a GPS-enabled phone, bring it along, but you don’t need anything special to map - just a pen and paper will do. Blank maps for note-taking can easily be made available if prior notice is provided.
