OpenStreetMap Day in Charlottetown?

I’m considering organizing a free day of training and doing on OpenStreetMap for Charlottetown.

Likely on a Saturday or Sunday in late November or early December, the day would be designed for absolute beginners with an interest in learning how to contribute to the OpenStreetMap project: we’d cover the basics, and then spend the balance of the time doing actual mapping.

The “actual mapping” process can involve both going out into the field on foot or bicycle to gather GPS traces and staying indoors and tracing map features over satellite photos, so people with a wide variety of abilities, interests, and mobilities would be welcome. I’ve got a couple of co-conspirators who’ve agreed to help, but we could always use more.

If this is something you’d be interested in either helping to organize or attending, please leave a comment here.

I like the idea, Peter. I’d be prepared to help out too. I’ve always been fascinated by maps. ‘Just returned from the UK, where I tried to navigate from Manchester to Coventry, to Wales and back, all using Google maps. I can’t tell you how many mistakes I encountered!
