[ARENA] Walking the Streets: creating open source maps for Guimarães
Quarta-Feira, 25 de Abril de 2012 - 23:55:00 WEST
*Walking the Streets*
Creating Open Source Maps for Guimarães
This is the first in a series of two workshops, which will focus on
mapping. There are two types of mapping, with different technological
and infrastructural requirements, which can each be explored and evolved
in workshops before being put into practice in the city.
The first workshop ‘Walking the Streets’ will consist of a talk about
maps and mapping, with particular emphasis on open and collaborative
mapping. We'll look at what maps are for, how they're made, and how to
"read" them, in the sense of understanding their intentions as well as
the bare facts that they communicate. And then we'll go out on the
streets of Guimarães to make our own maps, contributing to OpenStreetMap
<http://www.openstreetmap.org/> where possible, but also looking at
other ways to map the city, through emotions, experiences and personal
histories. Afterwards, these maps will be collated and presented online.
