About Our Events
Mappy Hours

Have an idea for a project, but don't know where to find data? Want to present a lightning talk to your peers in a relaxed, informal setting? Curious about the work of other GIS professionals in your area? Need some help with mapping or interested in seeing new approaches? Host or attend a "Mappy Hour"! These are informal get-togethers where all sorts of people, from GIS professionals and students to curious passers-by and hobbyists, meet up for a while to discuss, map, present, visit, and plan all things geospatial!

Mapathons

What is a mapathon? It's a coordinated event where participants focus their skills on mapping and editing data for a particular event, use case, or map source. Frequently used to assist with disaster response and humanitarian aid efforts, mapathons are not only a terrific way to crowdsource assistance, but also for participants to learn new tools and sharpen their geospatial skills. OpenStreetMap, a free and editable digital world map, provides a useful and common platform for mapathons to quickly organize work and streamline editing. To sign up for an OpenStreetMap account, click here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/new?cookie_test=trueThe Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) also provides a guide for new users: https://tasks.hotosm.org/learn/quickstart

See below for videos on how to sign up in the HOT tasking manager, how to select a task, how to map buildings, and an advanced user webinar. For those who want to know more, here are twelve two-minute tutorial videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLb9506_-6FMHZ3nwn9heri3xjQKrSq1hN
