Central Park mapping party

Posted by pnorman on 4 June 2014 in English (English)

I am planning on hosting a mapping event in Central Park (, in Burnaby, BC.

My tentative date is Saturday, June 14th at noon, but if people want a different time I could shift it.

The park is a major park in the region, but under-mapped, with potentially not all of the trails.

Some of the things I'd like to get mapped are

  • More appropriate tags for the trails. highway=track is probably not accurate
  • The surface of trails
  • Locations of fitness equipment in the park
  • Bathrooms
  • Picnic areas
  • Other park infrastructure
  • Anything missing or interesting

At this time of year, it should be nice sunny weather, and the shade from the trees should be welcome.

I intend to bring my mapping kit (camera, GPS, etc), as well as field papers type printouts on larger paper for us to mark up. I'm not planning on bringing a laptop, or if I do, it's staying in the trunk.

After mapping, we can go somewhere nearby for food. I'd also like to discuss holding regular events.

If you're interested, please let me know so that I know other people will be coming and to attend on time myself! I also need to have printouts made in advance.
