An OpenStreetMap- outdoor mapathon.

Mapping 500 outdoor artworks in the Portland-Vancouver Metro Area during the summer of 2015

On May 14 there were fewer than 50 OpenStreetMap mapped artworks in Portland. And none had photos.

This summer pdxosgeo (Portland's Opensource Geo group ) and friends will map at least 500 artworks in Portland, Vancouver, Gresham, Hillsboro. Along the way benches, eateries, pubs, drinking fountains, historical sites and key tourism attractions will get tagged.

We'll use atlas pages from fieldpapers.org, pre-printed.

Create an account on openstreetmap before hand if you want. And, if you have a smartphone, install an OSM POI (point of interest) editor app. PushPin and Go Map! are great.
