Map The U Spring 2021

Salt Lake City, Utah, United States

30th April 14:00 – 17:00

Spring has sprung, time to get out and map! There are many places on the U campus that could use an update, or more detail.

We will meet at the plaza in front of the main library. We will give tips and instruction to anyone who needs it. No skills required! Then we will pair up in small groups and survey. After a couple of hours we will reconvene. Depending on the COVID situation, if it's safe and possible to do so, we can head to a cafe or public space and add more things to OSM on our laptops.

What to bring:

  • Pen and paper, a cell phone, or a tablet with wi-fi
  • Optionally a laptop computer

You can use this map ahead of time to mark areas you think need a visit to update the OSM map! http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/map-the-u-mapping-party-spring-2021_587872

See you there!

PS: if you sign up for the event, please make sure to actually show up or change your RSVP! Your organizer thanks you.
