Concentrating our efforts

Brian Prangle Public Seen by 273

At the moment we're all beavering away individually on our own preferred areas at our own pace. Could we discuss having a mapathon type event one evening in March where we all devote say an hour at the same time? We could publicise it via various online channels or local channels. We could even call it "Night School". We might even devote it to NI.

Saturday 5th March is Open Data Day

Saturday nights are usually for going out ;-) Unless you're proposing a daytime event? Clashes I think with an East Mids OSM event

Night School sounds great. Could run it all evening as a 1 hour window might be too restrictive for some. A review of Harry Wood's data shows that Wednesday is the best day (just), followed by Tuesday. Avoid Friday and Saturday as less people are engaged then.

I'd suggest aiming for Wednesday 2nd March but this clashes with Mappa Mercia meeting so would make it hard for a few Midlanders to participate. Maybe act quick and go for 24th February, or Tuesday 1st March.

I've asked Martijn if it's possible to get a MapRoulette challenge online to help with the number of mappers all focusing in a small region.

Tuesday 1 March sounds good - gives ussome time to publicise via online media

Night School Closed 6:07pm - Tuesday 23 Feb 2016

Tuesday March 1st. An evening of mapping schools for everyone- start when you like, finish when you get tired or have to something to watch on TV. Aim is to map as many schools as we can and see how may people we can involve

Could split 50/50 (by coin toss or first letter of name) people across Wales and Manchester region (or NI)

I guess it has already been carried, but just wanted to agree :)

Day of the week makes little difference to me. 1/3 or 2/3 best. After that I am away for 4 days. Depending on how far I have progressed, I might devote the time to finishing off Anglesey or Wrexham.

Hi, it might have already been thought of, but it would be good if the progress map could be updated just prior to the event starting.

Just 1 more day to go before this event. There's plenty of mapping guides and help available if you or your friends need it.

Updating the progress map before and after the event would be a task for @robertwhittaker. Hopefully he has some time to do so. We also have the edit tracker at:

Yes, I should be fine to update http://robert.mathmos.net/osm/schools/ before and after the "School Night" even. I'm intending to participate, and should also be able to do a couple of updates during the evening too if that would be useful.

Is there an agreed start time for this activity? Or can we do stuff anytime we like during the 24hrs?

Entirely up to you

Is there a place where a question can be asked?
The Beehive (NR14 6EA) (http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/52.522495/1.472284) is marked with a blue circle (schools from the official lists that haven't been matched to an OSM object, Rob's map). I have ascertained that this school is to the NE of the blue circle and mapped it accordingly adding the edubase number.
Could the blue circle be resolved?
Regards

BC

BC March 1st, 2016 09:33

Further to my previous query regarding blue circles in NR sector. I think all 7 of the blue circles are resolved.

Well done - it takes a bit of getting used to- the blue circles are placed on the centroid of the postcode which might be some distance away from the actual school
