Before you read any further... Tomorrow night we're mapping around Fleet Street Sign up! sign up!
A couple of weeks ago we had a evening pub meet-up and mapping session in Notting Hill. Matt picked the pub, and gregory drew the cake diagram. So that was great. I got a bit of an organising holiday. If anyone fancies doing either of those things in future, please let me know... or just do it! Other tasks include setting up the wiki information, setting up listings on upcoming.org and other places, and doing a fun little diary entry about it afterwards. But wait! I forgot to do the fun little diary entry! OK here goes...
The weather was rather pleasant, and I'd somewhat cheekily opted to map a slice which was already thoroughly mapped, just because I fancied going to take a look at Holland Park. I'd never been there before. So had a quick peek:
And here is Gregory the elephant mapper himself, having fun mapping:
He was there with pontofisso, an Italian geo-dude. Hopefully Gregory gave him a good demo of OpenStreetMap mapping.
I reckon our pub meet-ups should be a good opportunity for people working with geo technology to find out more about OpenStreetMap (and anyone working in geo tech should be interested) The gatherings are pretty informal and the mapping is sort of nit-picking details at this stage, so you may prefer "bigger" mapping events or hack weekends... but for a little intro and chat with some OpenStreetMap people, why not pop along one evening. For example...
Tomorrow night we're off to Fleet Street to Ye Olde Cheshire cheese. This is partly because my sophisticated blob analysis reveals this to be a priority area, but mainly because it's one of our favourite pubs (look how happy we were last time we were there).
