I think that would be the appropriate time to schedule a mapathon. Like Sam, I am also interested in the event.

Where would the meetup location be?

I am hoping to find 17 countries or hosts to each take 1 hour during the day. If more hosts are interested, we can combine continents or make hosting slots 30 minutes. The more the mappier!

OSM US is happy to make some social media materials for the day and help set up mapping tasks as well. What would be needed from a host is to rally your communities and host for your portion of the 17 hours :)
