Taller OSM Mexico DF Agosto 2012

Posted by lxbarth on 9 August 2012 in English (English)

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.

Ground surveys

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.

This is just north of Polanco

Inside activities

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:
