The Missing Maps event will be organized in collaboration with the OSM GeoWeek partners and support one of the most urgent OSM GeoWeek projects around the topic of “Civil Rights”.
The event will start with an overview of the OSM GeoWeek, afterwards we will provide a short introduction into remote mapping in OpenStreetMap before the mapping sessions begin.
We will as usual provide snacks, drinks and nice after work sound.
