Some upcoming mapping parties and events to mention!
Check out this and this video from this thread on the OSM talk mailing list.
Some fun bits: Mikel has an article up on mybrightonandhove.org.uk. Cambridge has been completely mapped. Theres a LiveGPS plugin for JOSM for mapping on the move.
An enormously good time was had at the London mapping party this weekend just gone. We all met up at multimaps offices to divide up the city on Saturday morning and then went out and got on with it. A hour or two at lunchtime led to a lot of applet use (and mutterings about its various shortcomings) an data entered. Then off for an afternoon and the pub for drinks and food. Sunday saw much morning mapping and then nestoria-sponsored drinks. A lot done and a lot of mapping talk! 🙂 Special thanks to Dutch_DK for the above animation.
are kindly sponsoring office space for the meetup this weekend to map central London. Saturday 10am, their offices is the start time – all the info is over here.
have kindly offered to sponsor celebratory drinks after mapping on Sunday at the wind down! This’ll be at the John Snow in SOHO (see the wiki page for more.
It’s shaping up to be an awsome weekend!

I previously blogged about geospatial vision and the cool things they’re doing. I got the chance to go up and talk to them and this podcast with their technical director, Geoff Cross is the result. Have a look at their site to get a better idea. Enjoy!
