The Winter #editathon is on - join local mappers on January 18 and 19 in 11 cities across the United States or from home to improve OpenStreetMap. Work from your computer or go outside and survey.
Editathons are a great way to get started mapping or to connect up with other people in your area or a place you’re just visiting. The OpenStreetMap US chapter calls them quarterly and all events are led locally.
Here are the cities of this quarter’s event:
- Boston, MA Jan 18, 12-6pm EST
