OpenStreetMap (https://www.openstreetmap.org) is a freely available, community driven map resource that combines the local knowledge of volunteers around the world - including you! Carnegie Mellon University Libraries is offering a workshop on how to edit and process OpenStreetMap data so that you can contribute up-to-date information about roads, parks, sidewalks, monuments, public artworks, and more from your own community. You will also learn how to download and analyze data from OSM relevant to your classes and research.
Please set up an OpenStreetMap account prior to the workshop: https://openstreetmap.org/user/new
This workshop will support the Bridges of Pittsburgh project that explores the transportation networks of Pittsburgh and how they shape our civic communities, all while trying to find a way to cross all of the city’s 446 bridges in one trip. For more information about this project, please visit http://bridgesofpittsburgh.net
We encourage you to also attend the introduction of the Bridges Project directly before the event from 12:00pm to 1:00pm in Hunt Library's Studio B. Lunch will be provided.
