Hi,

Some time back, Johan Van de Wauw wrote to this list to talk about mapping
infrastructure for the homeless. Apparently, the group was very
enthusiastic about OSM, as they are organizing a mapping party on the
subject.

>From what I heard, the idea is to take already collected information and
share it with OSM. I do not know exactly how they will do this, if they
know enough about tagging schemes and external data use etc. From what I
understand, the idea is definitely not just doing a massive import, but
doing it bit by bit.

Maybe Johan can clarify here, or you can ask Christophe Cloquet
christophe at my-poppy.eu.

The event will be February 27th, in Brussels. Registration is required:

Info als at the OSGeo wiki :

Anyone is invited, but I can imagine that more experienced mappers could be
quite helpful.

I would like to share this on our Meetup and Twitter accounts, but first
I'd like to know more  details about the event.

Joost
