Portland January Mapathon

1417 NW Everett St, Suite 300
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)


Beginners & Experienced Mappers Welcome!

Come learn about the basics of Open Street Map and how to contribute as a remote mapper for Portland and for developing countries around the world through the Missing Maps Project.

Please bring your own laptop and mouse. Editing with the JOSM tool is much easier with your own mouse. We will provide all the learning materials needed so feel free to come even if you've never mapped before! This is a beginner friendly event with experienced mappers who can help.


10am-12pm Intro to Editing in Open Street Map (OSM)

This is especially helpful for beginners. Feel free to skip this segment if you're already comfortable with contributing to OSM or come early to help others or work on another mapping project.

12-4pm Mapping Work Party Starts

Join in on mapping needs for "PDX Building Imports" and the Missing Maps Project
