OSM in Chattanooga

Oct 9, 2017 | Chattanooga, Open Street Map, Tennessee

So my back and forth with OSM continues these days. Overall I enjoy it If I stay out of the way and map. I’m also tired of mapping mostly by myself – there are a few here that help and the High School chips in when they have time.

Probably 4 or 5 years ago I started a facebook page for OSM (because that was as organized as I had planned on making this). We are kickstarting the group again. So there will be a small meetup at the Tap House tomorrow at 6:30 EST

I’d love to get more of the “new” part of the River Walk finalized in OSM. Someone GPS’d it – now I’d like to fill out the amenities such as bathrooms and bike “stuff”.

If you are in town Swing by – if you’re interested in more meetups add yourself to the group. See you tomorrow.
