Monday Mapping Meetup (free!)
The first ever Monday Mapping Meetup will be held at 9am on Monday, September 19th, at the Map Room in Chicago! This is a free informal and coffee-laced gathering for NPO and community group staff interested in learning more about community mapmaking. We'll look at free and user-friendly tools and data sources - like Google Maps, US Census Datasets, and GeoCommons - that other groups are using to build powerful online "mapplications" in their neighborhoods and cities. Bring a laptop (optional) and your map-related questions and ideas!
Although this event is free, we're asking all attendees to buy a coffee, juice, and/or bagel to thank the Map Room for graciously hosting our meetup! Map Room is a short walk east of the Armitage Blue Line stop; bike parking is available. Questions? Contact us.
