Mapping as a Party

Who would have known that mapmaking can be so much fun? As part of the OpenStreetMap initiative in the U. K. , mapmaking and data collectors will be descending on Manchester - dubbed Mapchester - for the weekend of May 13th and 14th. The idea is get enough people and their GPS units together and map the entire city - sort of like a geocaching event but with a purpose other than fun. The resultant data will be free to view, edit and use. For more information, visit the wiki page on the event or the Futuresonic website.

Update: If you can’t make it out for Mapchester, head out to the Isle of Wight a weekend earlier where mapmaking and data collectors will be mapping the entire island.
