Mapping party in Delhi

Folks in Delhi interested in having a mapping party, please get in touch with me :smiley:

We’ll use Vespucci, the Android OSM editor, to improve OSM coverage in the area we decide to meet. We’ll decide on a time and place which suits everyone.

If there are any first timers, we’ll help them with creating an OSM account, installing Vespucci, and getting started with their first edits…so get in touch with anyone you think would be interested!

You can respond here, PM me over osm.org, or (ideally) get in touch over XMPP - contrapunctus@jabber.fr

The 4th Delhi mapping party will be held in Khan Market!

:spiral_calendar: Date - Sunday, 28th of January
:alarm_clock: Time - 12:00 PM to 2 PM

You don’t need any experience with OSM or maps to participate, and all are welcome. Please invite as many people as you can.

First-time participants should send an email to contrapunctus@disroot.org with their name and phone number. Recurring participants who have done so in the past need only say that they’re attending :slightly_smiling_face:

The 8th OSM Delhi mapping party is being held next weekend.

We’re hosting two parties this time - one covering a “rich” location (Nehru Place) and one a “poor” location (Laxmi Nagar) [1], with the aim of making OSM coverage more equitable. As a side effect, we also expect more people to be able to join us, due to the greater variety of timings and venues.

We encourage everyone to attend on both days, but you can choose to attend any one session, too.

Day 1 - 8th OSM Delhi Mapping Party - Day 1 | OpenStreetMap Calendar
:spiral_calendar: Date - Saturday, 18th of May
:alarm_clock: Time - 08:00 to 10:00 hours
:world_map: Location - Laxmi Nagar Metro Station

Day 2 - 8th OSM Delhi Mapping Party - Day 2 | OpenStreetMap Calendar
:spiral_calendar: Date - Sunday, 19th of May
:alarm_clock: Time - 16:00 to 18:00 hours (4 to 6 PM)
:world_map: Location - Nehru Place Metro Station

[1] Granted, it’s a little blurry in this case - Nehru Place isn’t exactly posh, nor is Laxmi Nagar the poorest area in Delhi…

The 9th OpenStreetMap Delhi mapping meetup is taking place next weekend. Due to the weather, it will be held indoors in air-conditioned spaces, and will focus on remote mapping (AKA armchair mapping) - so a laptop and a mouse are essential. You don’t need any experience with OSM or maps to participate, so bring all your friends!

To allow more people to attend, there are two sessions - one on Saturday and one on Sunday. We encourage everyone to attend on both days, but you can choose to attend any one session, too.

Session 1 - 9th OSM Delhi (Indoor) Mapping Meetup - Session 1 | OpenStreetMap Calendar
:spiral_calendar: Date - Saturday, 15th of June
:clock10: Time - 11 AM to 1 PM
:world_map: Location - Software Freedom Law Center (India), Jangpura

Session 2 - 9th OSM Delhi (Indoor) Mapping Meetup - Session 2 | OpenStreetMap Calendar
:spiral_calendar: Date - Sunday, 16th of June
:clock10: Time - 4 to 6 PM
