Join Wikipedians (in DC for the Wikimania conference), OSM mappers, and
other locals for a mapping party next Sunday, July 15th at Congressional
Cemetery.

The cemetery is just an empty green blob in OpenStreetMap, but it's rich in
history, monuments, and numerous politicians and notable people are buried
there.  You will also see QR codes there!  The QR codes link to Wikipedia
articles about these people.  We need a nice map to go with the QR codes.

We will meet at 10 a.m. outside the cemetery at Potomac Avenue & E St SE.
 Optionally you can meet us at 9 am at the GWU Marvin Center lobby and we
can ride over together.

In the afternoon, we will return to the GWU Marvin Center where we can
enter the data we collected into OpenStreetMap.

No GPS is required but bring one if you have one (or more to share).  We
will have some extras and walking papers.

RSVP here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3840264334 (or you are welcome
to just show up)

Cheers,
Katie
