OpenStreetMap Colorado

Posted by russdeffner on 22 May 2013 in English (English)

For those of you in Colorado, or passing through, or just interested; our local community is fantastic! No doubt there was a bit of momentum loss when the Coast's moved to the PNW, and I was totally swamped last summer with our terrible fire season; but we managed to keep rumbling along. JimmyRocks moving here gave a nice boost and we had a great group show up for the Spring Editathon, quite a few new faces have begun to appear including folks from the NPS - can't wait to hear Mamata's talk at SOTM-US - I hope they're contemplating our idea of mapping parties at national parks - let us in free and we'll map ;) - and all the sudden it seems we've got all these great ideas for meetups beyond the norm; we're going to have a SOTM-Denver (basically a recap for those who can't make it to San Fran) and what I'm really excited about, a Map/Camp-ing party later in the summer/fall. Oh, and it was a small but awesome meetup last weekend; the first event with the Coast's back in town, welcome home Hurricane!

We'd love to see more faces, so don't hesitate to join or even if you just want to see what we're up to, visit:

Cheers - hope to see/meet you at SOTM-US or a Colorado mapping event, =Russ

P.S. Any Utah folks want to help plan a (probably very future) Moab Map/Camp-ing party? I love that place and it's been too long since I visited.

Location: Snyder Creek Court, Jefferson, Park County, Colorado, 80456, United States of America

You can add Elbert County to the list of mostly fixed and corrected. Many road names are still missing, but at least OSM now shows a road where there is one. KP

Great! Have you tried getting the missing road names from TIGER 2012?
