Eric and myself will be leading a MapBox training and OpenStreetMap mapping party in Mexico City tomorrow, Friday (10) and Saturday (11). On both days we will meet at the Telmex Hub in the center of Mexico City. You can find all the details on our blog.
In preparation, I've done some research in areas of Mexico DF we could be focussing on. The weather might not be cooperating, scroll to the bottom to see our plan for if we're stuck with rain.
Here are a lot of areas in Mexico DF that we could survey with Walking Papers and GPS. I've pulled a bunch of them together based on what I see missing on the DF map, not knowing these areas myself. Let's pick ones that are busy and safe enough. Please add more where you see fit.
We should also figure out whether we can/should get bikes or cars for the survey.

Around La Raza
Around Camarones station
Area around Casco de Santo Tomás IPN
(Just south of the Camarones area described above)
North of Aragón
Peñón de los Baños
West of Iztacalco
The missing street names are due to the redaction process.
Around San Joaquín
This is just north of Polanco
There's a good chance of rain - if we can't do a ground survey (some rain shouldn't stop us) we have a backup program:
- Satellite tracing
- Using OSM data to render your own map with TileMill
- Visualizing progress in OpenStreetMap
- Research local geo sources
- Data density and quality research, create a backlog of next actions for Mexico DF or the entire country.
