** About OpenStreetMap
OpenStreetMap is a collaboratively built free map of the world, with simple 
wiki-like editing; think ‘Wikipedia’, but for maps. The result is highly 
detailed digital maps, created and edited by local communities, that are free 
to reproduce without the normal commercial restrictions. It's a fun project to 
get involved with; you'll discover how maps are made and uncover the 
geographical secrets of your neighbourhood.

Volunteers from all around Brisbane have already begun mapping the roads, 
footpaths and cycleways across the city, but now we need your help to improve 
our map by adding street and building details and amenities such as 
restaurants, parks, playgrounds and shops.

** The Event
Participants will be welcome to map however and wherever they want, but here 
are a few suggestions for things that other mappers like to collect:

Missing streets, footpaths and cycleways Missing street names Missing building 
details Missing street facilities (traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, speed 
bumps, etc.) Missing reserves, parks, schools and child-care centres Missing 
amenities (water fountains, toilets, playgrounds, seats, shelters, etc.) 
Details of shops/restaurants/pubs

However, if you aren't sure what you can do, we'll be happy to provide ideas 
and help get you started. If you have a GPS device, including a GPS-enabled 
phone, bring it along, but you don’t need anything special to map - just a pen 
and paper will do. Blank maps for note-taking can easily be made available if 
prior notice is provided.
