WYLUG Social and OpenStreetMap session – Sunday 24th February 2008

After the OpenStreetMap talk earlier in the month, we’re holding a micro-mapping session before the WYLUG social this Sunday (24th February 2008).

OpenStreetMap micro-mapping session – 2pm-6pm (ish)

Meet at the Wetherspoons/Becketts Bank pub on Park Row, Leeds at 2pm. We’ll assign areas and equipments once we see how many people turn up. (If you can, bring along a GPS receiver and a laptop – also, don’t forget a notepad/camera/dictaphone to record streetnames and landmarks along the way.)

We’ll try to assign city centre areas to people on foot and those with transport might end up mapping slightly further afield.

After a couple of hours of mapping, we’ll meet back at Becketts Bank around 5pm for a review of how it’s gone and to start downloading the data for editing etc.

Newcomers are very welcome to attend – hopefully there will be a few experienced mappers around to show us what to do.

WYLUG Social – from 7pm (ish)

Informal social meet giving WYLUGers a chance to chat about FOSS, Linux and other generally geeky things over a few drinks at the Scarbrough Hotel, Leeds (across the road from the train station).

Kicks off around 7pm-ish and continues until we all go home (probably around last orders knowing us) 😉

Feel free to drop in for a drink at any time – we’ll have a shiny penguin poster to indicate who we are if you’ve not been down before.

  1. […] WYLUG seems to have been bitten by the Open mapping bug, recently, they had a very good presentation and talk about OSM, then they organised a micro mapping party last Sunday for Leeds. Eight enthusiastic folks turned up, myself included, and I helped map the famous Jimmy’s Hospital, and the area towards town, see it on the map (when it recovers from the ongoing slashdotting!), now Bradford, which is disgracefully empty in coverage, hence no links to the pubs. Wonder if any of my mapping ex-colleagues from the Council will come… […]
