Maptime PHL is holding a special event on 5/30/15 about mapping food resources in OpenStreetMap.
Our second meetup for the month of May is on a special day,Saturday, because we have some special guests in town to lead the session.
Sterling Quinn, a PhD student at Penn State’s Department of Geography, along with a few other folks from the department are traveling all the way from Happy Valley to teach us about the relationship between OpenStreetMap (OSM) and Philly food resources.
Following a presentation by Sterling about his research on this topic, we will spend the rest of the event adding local food related resources to OSM as well as improving the data which exists already.
As always, no prior experience necessary. simply an interest in maps and learning new things! so mark your calendars, set aside a few hours of your Saturday afternoon, and let’s map and learn together.
for a sneak peek at some of what we’ll be discussing, you can also check out this OSM 101 presentation from our first ever meetup and find other OpenStreetMap related info on the maptime lessons and resources page.
Food and drinks provided by Azavea, our super cool and awesome sponsor.
