Event: #Maptime Detroit – #MapLift

MapLiftOutlineLet’s get together and make maps for MapLift: http://nacis.org/maplift/

MapLift is an event to improve Wikipedia’s existing maps and add new ones.

Find a wikipedia article:

  1. with a map that needs updating/fixing (this neighborhood map of Detroit)
  2. that could use a map (like this article about the Detroit riverfront)

and come work on it with your fellow mappers at Loveland (1514 Washington Blvd)! We’ll have some pizza and refreshments, so come on down and let’s create/improve some source material for the free encyclopedia anyone can edit. (Feel free to get some OpenStreetMap editing/digitizing in as well!)

We’ll also be holding ‘office hours’: Got a question about a project you’re working on? Stuck on how to do something in QGIS/Mapbox Studio/ArcMap/CartoDB/Leaflet? Maptime Detroit organizers will be around to answer your questions.

This will be a casual meetup, no presentations, so come through anytime from 5-9p.
