Once you have a date let me know and I can check in on space.  THe ateium is grand, food is a monopoly situation, but if during the weekend we can work around stuff.

Setting a time would also be in order, but I imagine this has to be figured out based on availability of rooms

Thank you all for the responses!

I would like to have this during OSM Geoweek, but that week is approaching quickly. It would make sense to first designate a time and space to hold the Mapathon. I was thinking November 16th or 17th. This is after Nov. 14th event at the Royal Canadian Geographic Society where I believe Statistics Canada will be giving a presentation on their OSM project (https://twitter.com/CarletonDGES/status/920993927934574592).

I am very familiar with the Carleton campus, so Loeb building could be an option since it is the location of the Geography department. Tracey, I hear that Richcraft Hall is the nicest building on campus though. 😉 If anybody else is familiar with Carleton’s campus I’m open to location ideas.

Hello all!

I am a Masters of Science student in the Geography department at Carleton University studying Quality Assessment of OSM data for my thesis. I am also currently employed at Employment and Social Development Canada as a Geomatics Technician where I have been promoting the use of OSM data within the department.

I discussed the idea of a possible mapathon at Carleton University with Statistics Canada, the Carleton Geography department and Mapbox. I am reaching out (similar to Tim’s post above) to find additional OSM mappers to assist us with the mapathon. I am fairly experienced with OSM myself but I have never led a mapathon event. I am aware of COMS2200 issues with contributions and do not want a repeat of this. 😊 I believe focusing on the OSM Canada Task Manager and rural/remote regions will help avoid poor contributions.

Any help is much appreciated!

Regards,
Kent
