Event Description

The Geography Department, Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR), Bicycle Club, and Geographical Society at the University of South Florida (USF)  are hosting an OpenStreetMap (OSM) Party on Saturday  October 29. 

  • We invite members of USF and the Tampa community to become involved in an OSM party which is focusing on mapping  the USF campus and surrounding area.
  • We need local knowledge to help map safe bike and walking paths,  bus routes and stops, local amenities,  safe zones, cultural and historical spots and other areas of interest in and around USF.
  • No experience is necessary!  Individuals and groups are invited to come and join the party with their own mapping ideas.  Experienced GPS mappers will be on hand to assist.
  • No special equipment is necessary, but if you have a GPS that can record points or paths, a camera, (both available on many smart phones), a laptop computer, or a bicycle, you may find it useful.
  • Think Wikipedia meets MapQuest! Mapping data will be uploaded and made available  on the OSM web page for public use. The Libyan Rebels used OSM and you can too!!!   


Meet up at USF’s Marshall Center Room 2702 at 12 pm on Saturday October 29.   We will eat up,  gear up with GPS units, and map treks around the USF campus and surrounding area. Mapping data will be uploaded to the OSM  already in progress.
