Mapping Antigua

A session at 45th Annual Society of Cartographers Summer School

Wednesday 9th September, 2009

1:50pm to 1:50pm (GMT)

It all started with Ed Parsons (of Google) announcing Mapmaker at the OpenStreetMap conference, and that they were concentrating on mapping the Caribbean as part of the first round. He then mused that it would be good to be able to do some fieldwork as part of it. OpenStreetMap s immediate response was to set up a Pledgebank project to actually fund someone to do that very thing for OSM, not Google. This is the story of that pledge and what resulted from it.
