Maptime Albany

22 April 2015 by Bryan McBride

Maptime is an exciting new initiative with the mission of “opening the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested, by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies”.

Maptime chapters are starting to pop up all across the globe by folks who are interested in sharing their work and learning about what other local mappers are up to.

Time for making maps!

Following this year’s FOSS4G-NA Conference in San Francisco, Katy Decorah, from Mapbox, and I realized we were neighbors, both living in New York’s Capital Region and working remotely for geospatial technology companies. We got together to establish the Maptime Albany chapter and had our first meetup on April 21st.

What’s mappening in the Capital District?

Our first meetup was held at the University at Albany and turnout was decent on fairly short notice. After some brief introductions, several of us gave short presentations on some of the projects we’ve been working on.
