Past weekend’s #editathon was a great success. Almost one hundred users participated across eight physical locations, as well as from their homes. People came together to add detail to their neighborhoods, map bus routes, improve the map with MapRoulette , get an introductory workshop to OpenStreetMap, test new editors and more. This level of turnout certainly motivates us to continue calling #editathons. Have you participated in the #editathon, and have feedback? Please let us know by filling out this quick survey .
This event wouldn’t have been possible without the many local communities chiming in. A big Thank You first and foremost to individuals hosting local events, but also to organizations providing space like Telenav in Sunnyvale, CA and Boston, MA; the public library of Seattle; stamen design in San Francisco, CA, and MapBox in Washington, DC. We would also like to thank JP Graphics , a full-service offset printer located in the heart of Silicon Valley, who donated signage for the Sunnyvale, CA event.
