Short description of the event:

To celebrate ALL DIGITAL week, the Crowddreaming consortium will host an online webinar on OpenStreetMaps. The webinar will give participants a chance to learn about free and open source software culture and practical ways which everyone can participate in free and open source software culture particularly by using open street maps. The purpose of this webinar is to invite participants and teachers, particularly those of the crowddreaming project learn how to add locations and site relevant to their local cultural heritage to open street maps.

OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. It was created in 2004 inspired by wikipedia which crowdsources data which is made available under the Open Database License. There are around 2 million registered users of open street maps who collect data using manual survey, GPS devices and aerial photography.

The short one hour webinar will give a short introduction to open street maps and will teach users about:

  • How to see issues on Open street maps?
  • How to resolve issues on open street maps?
  • How to add your organisation or digital competence centre to Open Street Maps?

The webinar will take place on the 24th of March at 4pm. Sign up for the webinar on this link.
