OpenStreetMap Mapathon with UBC's YouthMappers
Join us for an evening of OpenStreetMap editing hosted by UBC Geography Students' Association YouthMappers chapter!
You're invited to participate in an open map editing session to help improve the information found in OpenStreetMap. OpenStreetMap is an openly accessible map-based dataset covering the globe, and is built and maintained by volunteers. Join us as we guide you through the steps to edit OpenStreetMap data and submit your changes for the next steps in quality control. The session will begin by a short introductory session by UBC Geography Students’ Association YouthMappers chapter, so everyone will become familiar with the editing process. No previous experience is necessary. Information to learn more about OpenStreetMap will be emailed to registrants before the event.
Beginners are welcome and encouraged to attend!
No software technical requirements are necessary, other than to have a good internet connection and an internet browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
