Mapping day! Maptember!

Map blank areas around Kiwafu

Fruits of Thought will be holding a public mapping event on Saturday 31st August 2013. We shall map a part of Kiwafu and Kansanga area. Another important topic and theme for this event is to build a solid OSM community for the Uganda local chapter, and see how some of the participants on this event can get involved in this.

Come ready to experience, first hand, what a typical mapping day entails! as well as the tools, software, and the people who make this happen. Please Register here. Below is a sneak peak into what the day will be like:

We have had a couple of mapping days earlier in the year! This particular one is special because it comes just a week before the annual OSM State Of The Map conference on the 6th- 8th of September 2013. This is a conference worth watching, especially for OSM enthusiasts! Plus more about OSM mapping talks at the FOSS4g conference.
We are looking forward to mapping with you!
