I am planning on hosting a mapping event in Central Park
(http://osm.org/way/23165846), in Burnaby, BC.
My tentative date is Sunday, June 15th at around noon, but if people
want a different time I could shift it.
The park is a major park in the region, but under-mapped, with
potentially not all of the trails.
Some of the things I'd like to get mapped are
- More appropriate tags for the trails. highway=track is probably not
- The surface of trails
- Locations of fitness equipment in the park
- Picnic areas
- Other park infrastructure
- Anything missing or interesting
At this time of year, it should be nice sunny weather, and the shade
from the trees should be welcome.
I intend to bring my mapping kit (camera, GPS, etc), as well as field
papers type printouts on larger paper for us to mark up. I'm not
planning on bringing a laptop, or if I do, it's staying in the trunk.
After mapping, we can go somewhere nearby for food. I'd also like to
discuss holding regular events.
If you're interested, please let me know so that I know other people
will be coming and to attend on time myself! I also need to have
printouts made in advance.
