Map-a-thon Toolkit

What to do before the Map-a-thon

  • Get an OSM account
  • This is the slideshow we will be using the day of the Ma-a-thon. If you can please go through it before you come!
  • Watch some more videos on how to use the task manager in Open Street Map.
  • What to expect once the Map-a-thon begins?

    If you are off-site please log-in to the Battle of Maps virtual room.

    For those participating virtually please go through the slideshow beforehand! It will be difficult to provide hands on help but we will definitely try!

    We will be picking projects from the HOTOSM website. We will be giving brief tutorials/workshops to get people up to speed and we will have volunteers on hand to get you started and answer questions. As we map we will have a leaderboard showing our progress against UCLA. In addition we will have a live feed so we can say hello and see how are counterparts are doing.
