Project of the Week: On Your Way To Girona

State of the Map is next weekend, and many of you are making your way
towards the beautiful Spanish weather right now. So that is the
Project of the Week. Map your travel to Girona. Make sure the
airports, railways and highways that you’ll take to Girona are on the
map. Where is the taxi stand for the local taxi company that will
take you to the airport? How about the cobbler who repaired your
favourite hiking boots? Is that shop on the map?

But Project of the Week isn’t just for those of you fortunate enough
to be meeting with so many other interesting mappers from distant
lands and varied backgrounds. Even if you aren’t coming to Griona,
how would you get there? Is this the opportunity that you were
waiting for to map your local soaring club, cycle path or skateboard
park? If you imagine that you would travel to Girona by pogo-stick,
is the pogo-stick shop on the map? Would you canoe or kayak to Spain?
Put your favourite pier and portage on the map.
