Seems like I am becoming the go to guy for mapping parties here at UCL!

I will be running a mapping party day for the MSc students at the Bartlett's Development Planning Unit http://www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/dpu  next Friday (2nd of March) AM & PM.

Anyone from the OSM community who wants to participate and get the chance to introduce OSM to around 34 students would be more than welcome.

Andy - Again, a good opportunity to observe a batch of novice users of Potlatch2 !

Here is a draft programme:

*         10 - 11-30 - Muki Introduction to OSM Lecture

*         11-30 - 12-00 - Patrick Introduction to Mapping Party, theme and attributes to focus on:

*         12-00 - 14-30 - Lunchbreak/Mapping Party:

o   Focus will be on accessibility for reduced mobility users, 6 groups, each group getting one area around UCL to map by walking around with paper map provided by myself.  They can use their smartphones (with OSM Apps) to collect data as well if they so wish.

*         14-30 - 17:00: Classroom session:

o   Groups will feed into OSM data they collected using OSM browser editing interface (Potlatch2 , needs flash installed on browser). A secondary task will then be to get data back from OSM into QGIS, so they can create a map.
