This month’s Maptime will be dedicated to exploring Crowd-sourced Maps – those maps that you invite a public to join in and contribute to as well as location-based texting services. Want to learn more or share what you’ve already investigated about these things? Or do you just want to learn more about maps and Maptime? Then please join us! Bring along your laptop!
Maptime is a collection of beginner-focused community groups for learning geospatial technology, techniques, and concepts, particularly using open source tools and hands-on practice and exercises. If you’ve ever dreamt of mapping the world around you, this event is for you.
